Career Transitions of College Seniors
Yang, Eunjoo; Gysbers, Norman C.
Career Development Quarterly, v56 n2 p157-170 Dec 2007
In a study with 191 college students, canonical correlation analysis explored career search self-efficacy and psychological distress (career search set) in relation to psychological resources and regulatory focus (career transition set), producing 2 significant canonical correlations. The 1st correlation dimension showed that decreased career search self-efficacy and increased psychological distress had a moderate relationship with decreased psychological resources and minimal relationship with low promotion focus and high prevention focus. The 2nd dimension illustrated that the increase in anxiety and personal exploration efficacy were associated with increased readiness for the career transition and elevated prevention focus.
