The Career Transition Inventory (CTI) is a well-known measure for assessing perceptions of psychological resources when adults undergo a career change. The purpose of this study was to conduct a psychometric evaluation of a French version of the CTI (CTI-F). A total of 1,042 French volunteer participants completed the CTI-F. The procedure used combined confirmatory and exploratory factor analyses. The definitive CTI-F included 19 items loading three factors labeled Confidence, Readiness, and Decision Independence. The scale showed an acceptable internal consistency, good test-retest reliability, a well-established convergent validity, and a lack of sensitivity to social desirability. The present study demonstrates the sound psychometric properties of the French version of the CTI, supporting its use by both vocational counselors and researchers. Furthermore, with this type of validated tool it will be henceforth possible to examine cross-cultural differences and similarities between countries with different social and workplace systems (e.g., collectivist vs. individualist).
