Self-Efficacy Beliefs as Shapers of Children's Aspirations and Career Trajectories.
Bandura, Albert; Barbaranelli, Claudio; Caprara, Gian Vittorio; Pastorelli, Concetta
Child Development, v72 n1 p187-206 Jan-Feb 2001
Tested a structural model of the network of sociocognitive influences shaping children's career aspirations and trajectories among 272 early adolescents. Found that subjects' perceived efficacy rather than their actual academic achievement was the key determinant of their perceived occupational self-efficacy and preferred choice of worklife. Analyses of gender differences revealed that perceived occupational self-efficacy predicted traditionality of career choice. (Author/KB)
