Explaining Career Decision-Making Self-Efficacy: Personality, Cognitions, and Cultural Mistrust
Bullock-Yowell, Emily; Andrews, Lindsay; Buzzetta, Mary E.
Career Development Quarterly, v59 n5 p400-411 Sep 2011
The authors explore the hypothesis that career decision-making self-efficacy could be affected by negative career thoughts, Big Five personality factors, and cultural mistrust in a sample of African American and Caucasian college students. Findings demonstrated that negative career thinking, openness, and conscientiousness explained a significant amount of variance in career decision-making self-efficacy in a general sample of college students, but no unique variance was explained by cultural mistrust in a sample of African American college students. (Contains 3 tables.)
