Predictors of Career Indecision in Three Racial/Ethnic Groups of College Women
Lopez, Frederick G.; Ann-Yi, Sujin
Journal of Career Development, v33 n1 p29-46 2006
This study examines the contributions of career-related barrier and social support perceptions, barrier-related coping beliefs, and career decision-making self-efficacy beliefs to the prediction of career indecision in three racial/ethnic groups of college women. Results indicate that although there are no racial/ethnic differences across scores on most of the key measures, African American women perceive significantly greater career barriers than do either White or Hispanic women. Separate within-racial/ethnic group regressions of career indecision scores indicate that the full model collectively accounted for substantial amounts of criterion variance (range of R[superscript 2] = 0.31 to 0.47), although the pattern of predictor contributions varies somewhat across the three groups. (Contains 3 tables.)
