Journal of Career Development, v32 n4 p378-393 2006
Recent research has advanced our understanding of the modifications needed for Holland's hexagonal model of occupational interests when applied to Hong Kong Chinese. This study continues this line of research in testing the validity of Wong's Career Interest Assessment Questionnaire (WCIAQ) and the revised hexagonal model developed in Hong Kong to three other Chinese societies, namely Macau, Mainland China, and Taiwan. Samples of undergraduate students were obtained in these three Chinese societies and Hong Kong. Results indicated that the WCIAQ and the revised hexagonal model developed in Hong Kong are more applicable to these three Chinese societies than Holland's original model developed in Western societies. Implications for career counseling and education and further research in these Chinese societies are discussed. (Contains 1 figure and 6 tables.)
