Career Guidance in India Based on O*NET and Cultural Variables
Bhatnagar, Mohit
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v18 n1 p81-99 Mar 2018
The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) is the primary source of occupational information in the United States (US). In this study, I review O*NET's usage for career guidance in India and conceive a career intervention based on it. In an empirical evaluation adopting a posttest-only experimental design with post-graduate management students (N = 220), effectiveness of the career intervention in reducing career decision-making difficulties is presented. An important cultural insight the study offers regarding occurrence of career decision-making difficulties, are the differences due to vertical-horizontal characteristics, apart from the more researched individualism-collectivism characteristics.
