Career Decision-Making and Corporate Responsibility
Sainty, Rosemary
Australian Journal of Career Development, v17 n2 p47-53 Win 2008
This paper seeks to investigate the extent of influence of corporate (or organisational) responsibility on university students' career decision-making. It reports on a pilot study conducted at the University of Sydney which aims to: explore students' ethical, professional and social understanding regarding corporate responsibility; determine the importance of these issues relevant to other career values in career decision-making and choice of employer; understand on what basis students currently judge employers on these issues and how these career decisions are arrived at, and finally identify gaps in current careers resources with the aim of using this information to develop relevant resources. Findings include a strong awareness of the elements of corporate responsibility regarding career decision-making with implications for employers, careers practitioners and theorists. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
