The aim of this research is to examine the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the Employment Hope Scale (EHS; Hong et al. 2012). The sample of this study consisted of 398 (235 female and 163 male) teachers. The results of confirmatory factor analysis demonstrated that the six items loaded on one factors and the one-dimensional model was well fit (x[superscript 2] = 215.29, df = 63 p = 0.00, RMSEA = 0.078, NFI = 0.95, NNFI = 0.95, CFI = 0.96, IFI = 0.96, RFI = 0.92, GFI = 0.93, AGFI = 0.88, and SRMR = 0.040). The internal consistency coefficients of two subscales were 0.85 and 0.90 respectively, for the overall scale was.93. In the concurrent validity significant relationship (r = 0.37) was found between the Employment Hope Scale and Career Adaptability and Optimism Scale. The t-test results differences between each item's means of upper 27% and lower 27% points were significant. The corrected item-total correlations of EHS ranged from 0.55 to 0.78. Overall findings demonstrated that this scale is a valid and reliable instrument for assessing the employment hope. EHS can be utilized in various areas like workforce management, social policies and leadership research.
