An Examination of Strategies for Encouraging Feedback Interest after Career Assessment
Anseel, Frederik; Lievens, Filip
Journal of Career Development, v33 n3 p250-268 2007
This study examines how feedback interest after career assessment can be influenced by changing individuals' beliefs about the importance and modifiability of the various performance dimensions. In an experiment, 82 master students completed a computerized assessment tool developed for assessing managerial potential. Results showed that participants in the experimental condition were more interested in feedback about important dimensions as opposed to unimportant dimensions and were more interested in feedback about nonmodifiable dimensions as opposed to modifiable dimensions. These findings might assist career counselors and organizations in designing strategies that direct feedback interest toward performance dimensions that are most important for their clients' career or that are most valued in their organization. (Contains 2 figures, 3 tables and 1 note.)
