Rynes, Sara L.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v30 n2 p138-54 Apr 1987
Surveyed undergraduate engineering students (N=284) regarding their long-term career aspirations. Revealed factors that differentiated engineering aspirants from managerial ones: reasons for going to engineering school, beliefs about engineering as an occupation, career anchors, intended use of career strategies, curriculum choices, and early career plans. No differences were detected in ability or extracurricular involvement. (Author/ABB)
