Social Support and Career Thoughts in College Athletes and Non-Athletes
Rodriguez, Stefanie
Professional Counselor, v2 n1 p12-21 2012
The career decision-making process can be a daunting task during the college years for both athletes and non-athletes alike. Understanding factors that influence this process and ways to best support students as they are making career decisions is integral to counselors working with college students. Social support and career thoughts were examined in 118 college student-athletes and 154 non-athletes from a large public university in the southeastern United States. Social support was found to have a significant relationship with career thoughts. In addition, several significant differences were found between the study's subpopulations. Implications for practice and future directions for research are further explored.
