Counselors' Perceived Person-Environment Fit and Career Satisfaction
Rehfuss, Mark C.; Gambrell, Crista E.; Meyer, Dixie
Career Development Quarterly, v60 n2 p145-151 Jun 2012
This correlational study examined the relationship between career satisfaction and person-organization, demands-abilities, and needs-supplies fit with counselors (N = 464) using the Perceived Job Fit instrument (Cable & DeRue, 2002) and a scale of career satisfaction adapted from the Adult Career Concerns Inventory (Super, Thompson, Lindeman, Myers, & Jordaan, 1988). Using a linear, multiple regression analysis, the authors found that person-organization fit (p = 0.01) and needs-supplies fit (p = 0.00) were both positively related to career satisfaction and that there was no relationship between demands-abilities fit and career satisfaction.
