Advancing in the Career Decision-Making Process: The Role of Coping Strategies and Career Decision-Making Profiles
Perez, Maya; Gati, Itamar
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v17 n3 p285-309 Oct 2017
We tested the associations among the career decision-making difficulties, the career decision status, and either (a) the career decision-making profiles of 575 young adults, or (b) the coping strategies of 379 young adults. As hypothesized, a more advanced decision status was negatively associated with both career decision-making difficulties (?[superscript 2] = 0.24) and the use of non-productive coping strategies (?[superscript 2] = 0.10), and positively associated with an adaptive career decision-making profile (?[superscript 2] = 0.05) and the use of support-seeking coping strategies (?[superscript 2] = 0.06). Productive coping strategies were not found to be associated with decision status (?[superscript 2] = 0.01). The results and their implications are discussed.
