Adolescents' and Young Adults' Reasoning about Career Choice and the Role of Parental Influence.
Bregman, George; Killen, Melanie
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v9 n3 p253-75 1999
Examined adolescents' and young adults' evaluations of reasons for career decisions, and the role of parental influence. Found that subjects supported career choices for reasons of personal growth and rejected choices when decisions were based on interpersonal relationships or hedonism. Parental influence was judged most important when adolescents' decisions had negative moral consequences or focused on short-term goals. (Author/KB)
