Identity and Spatial Experience of Community Youth in Relation to Career Guidance
Zhang, Yong; Han, Minghua
Frontiers of Education in China, v5 n3 p347-364 Sep 2010
In order to investigate the self identity and vocational identity among community youth in Shanghai and their associated spatial experience, 4 focus groups, made up of 14 individuals were interviewed. We assigned numbers to indicate each interviewee as well as the general theme of each transcription of the interview. Results are as follows: community youth are in a transitional period in their lives, especially in regards to self concept, family, and how they experience their role in society; there is a notable distance between reality and the ideal career goals; the family space and community space have distinct characteristics for community youth, and there are specific interactive patterns that exist between the two types of spaces. Based on these results, we have introduced several insights into career guidance for this population.
