Work Hope and Influences of the Career Development among Ukrainian College Students
Yakushko, Oksana; Sokolova, Olga
Journal of Career Development, v36 n4 p310-323 2010
This exploratory study focused on the career development experiences of college-age students in Ukraine, a country that is experiencing tremendous social, political, demographic, and economic transitions. The tentative hypotheses included examination of relationships among work hope attitudes, self-esteem, and career development influences in a sample of 312 Ukrainian college students. Greater work hope attitudes were found in those students who reported relying on their own selves in their career choice in contrast to those who relied on their parents or other sources. Self-esteem was positively related to work hope attitudes as well as students' beliefs in the importance of education and skills in obtaining work. Suggestions for future research, theory, and practice with this population are provided. (Contains 2 tables.)
