Social Cognitive Predictors of the Career Goals of Korean American Students
Kelly, Kevin R.; Gunsalus, Ae-Jung Chang; Gunsalus, Robert
Career Development Quarterly, v58 n1 p14-28 Sep 2009
Limited empirical study of the career development of Asian Americans in general and Korean Americans in particular has been conducted. The authors present the results of a theory-based exploration of the career goals of Korean American university students in which ethnic identity, self-efficacy, outcome expectations, and career interests were used to predict goal intentions for science and nonscience careers. Outcome expectations and career interests predicted a moderate amount of variance in science career goal intentions and a moderate to large amount of variance in nonscience career goal intentions. Korean American students' career goal development seems similar to that of American college students. (Contains 3 tables.)
