Comparing the Chinese Career Key and the Self-Directed Search with High School Girls in Hong Kong
Ting, Siu-Man Raymond
Journal of Career Development, v34 n2 p192-209 2007
A career interest inventory, the Chinese Career Key (CCK) adapted from the Career Key based on Holland's theory of vocational choice, was studied. The purpose of the study was to further examine the psychometric qualities and user satisfaction of the CCK by comparing it to the Self-Directed Search. Students at a girls' public high school (N = 130) in Hong Kong participated in the study. The research findings provided further evidence of validity, reliability, and user satisfaction among students in Hong Kong. Cultural differences, limitations, and implications for future studies and counseling practice are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
