The Contributions of Emotional Intelligence and Social Support for Adaptive Career Progress among Italian Youth
Di Fabio, Annamaria; Kenny, Maureen E.
Journal of Career Development, v42 n1 p48-59 Feb 2015
Drawing from career construction and positive youth development perspectives, this study explores, among 254 Italian high school students, the relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and support from friends and teachers with indices of adaptive career development. Results from the full canonical correlational model revealed that dimensions of EI and teacher support were positively associated with resilience and self-perceived employability. These results suggest that EI and teacher support warrant further investigation as factors that may contribute to adaptive career progress among youth.
