Structure of Vocational Interests for Korean College Students
Journal of Career Assessment, v12 n3 p298-311 2004
The primary purpose of this research was to examine the vocational structure for Korean college students based on Holland's hexagon theory. The secondary purpose of this research was to provide validity data for using the Korean Strong Interest Inventory in Korea. With a sample of 829 Korean college students, using the Strong Interest Inventory 1994 version in Korean, the results showed that there was an overall significant difference between male and female students. There were good fits of Holland's circular order model to the data for both male and female groups. Both male and female Korean students had similar fit indices in their size.
