Chinese Undergraduate Students' Work Values: The Role of Parental Work Experience and Part-Time Work Quality
Cheung, Francis Yue-lok; Tang, Catherine So-kum
Journal of Career Development, v39 n3 p231-247 Jun 2012
In this study, the authors investigated the association of perceived parental job insecurity and students' part-time work quality on work values among 341 Hong Kong Chinese undergraduate students. Correlation and regression results showed that work values were strongly related to students' part-time work satisfaction and work quality. In particular, regression analyses showed that high job satisfaction and low role conflict in the part-time job were significantly related to high motivation to do good work but low work cynicism, even after demographic information was considered. Layoff of the mother was also found to relate to work cynicism. The importance of student career counseling and organizational practice was discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
