Invisibility, Perceptions and Image: Mapping the Career Choice Landscape.
Foskett, Nicholas H.; Hemsley-Brown, Jane
Research in Post-Compulsory Education, v4 n3 p233-48 1999
A study of British students in Years 6, 10, and 12 found that they base their understanding of careers and work on images from personal experience, adults, and the media. Career decisions are based on pragmatic, opportunistic factors, not well matched with supply and demand. A divergent, holistic approach to guidance should challenge their assumptions. (SK)
