Antecedents of Intent to Change Careers among Psychologists
Carless, Sally A.; Bernath, Lisa
Journal of Career Development, v33 n3 p183-200 2007
The aim of this research was to examine the antecedents of intent to change careers among psychologists. Specifically, the research examined the importance of the following predictor variables: a multi-dimensional model of career commitment (career planning, career resilience, and career identity), job satisfaction, and conscientiousness. A self-report questionnaire was used to obtain data from a sample of Australian psychologists (N = 437). The findings showed that career planning, career resilience, and job satisfaction were significant predictors of intent to change careers. Career identity and conscientiousness were not significant predictors. Theoretical and practical implications of the research were discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 2 notes.)
