Acculturation and Career Beliefs--Is There a Relationship for International University Students?
Mahadevan, Lakshmi
College Student Journal, v44 n3 p633-658 Sep 2010
The major purpose of this study was to explore the relationship(s) between acculturation and the career beliefs of Indian, Chinese and Korean international students. Each of the participants was administered a demographics questionnaire, an adapted version of the Suinn-Lew Asian Self-Identity Acculturation Scale (SL-ASIA) and the Career Beliefs Inventory (CBI). Descriptive data based on the three instruments are given. Individual data analyses were conducted for each country. An internal consistency analysis indicated low reliabilities for the adapted SL-ASIA. Modest reliabilities were found for the CBI scales. Unclear factor solutions emerged for both instruments. A low canonical correlation was found between acculturation levels and career beliefs. The findings have implications for culturally relevant career counseling and multicultural career assessment.
