The Job Decision Factors Survey used policy capturing to measure the influence of 7 factors on job decisions. Data from 400 undergraduate students at a large university, 88% 18-25 years of age, 12% 25-65 years of age, 82% female, 54% White, 21% Asian, 10% Black, 10% Hispanic, 1% American Indian, were included in a regression analysis. Hypothesis 1, the significance of the 7-factor model, was supported (R[superscript 2] = 0.02). Hypothesis 2, opportunities to learn accounting for more variance than compensation, was supported ([beta] = 0.11, [beta] = 0.06, respectively). Job counselors should consider highlighting learning opportunities when counseling or interviewing similar populations. (Contains 2 tables.)
