Factors Influencing International Students' Career Choice: A Comparative Study
Singaravelu, Hemla D.; White, Lyle J.; Bringaze, Tammy B.
Journal of Career Development, v32 n1 p46-59 2005
This study examines the career development behavior of Asian international, non-Asian international, and domestic students, specifically the certainty of career and major choice and environmental factors that have influenced their choices. Environmental factors include family, school counselors, teacher, friends, and government. The results show no difference in the level of career certainty between the three groups. In contrast, influences of family, school counselors, and friends varied among these three groups. Furthermore, only the Asian international students exhibited a positive correlation between level of career certainty and intent to persist. Implications and recommendations for counseling are given based on the research findings. (Contains 1 table.)
