Occupational Aspirations of a Longitudinal Sample from Second to Sixth Grade.
Helwig, Andrew A.
Journal of Career Development, v24 n4 p247-65 Sum 1998
Second graders (n=208) were followed up in fourth grade (n=160) and sixth grade (n=130), with surveys of 162 mothers and 159 fathers. Boys chose more same-sex occupations as they matured, girls the opposite. They identified more realistic aspirations as they matured, and choice of job level tended to match parents' expectations.
