Abstract Based on the conservation of resources perspective of person-environment (P-E) fit, the present research integrates P-E fit theory with the socialization literature to examine lagged reciprocal relationships between student-university fit and proactive socialization behaviors (i.e., feedback seeking, relationship building with instructors, general socializing, and positive framing). A six-month longitudinal study of 428 freshmen in a Chinese university revealed that relationship buildin...

Abstract Career adaptability has been conceptually and empirically linked with successful career transitions. However, research on the antecedents of career adaptability dimensions (i.e., concern, control, curiosity, and confidence) among students in school-to-work transition contexts remains sparse. In this paper, we investigate whether internship participation develops career adaptability over time and whether interns' conscientiousness supports faster development of career adaptability. Data ...
Abstract One common challenge for faculty is decisions regarding the allocation of time across research, teaching, and service tasks. We investigate faculty time allocation among typical faculty members using latent profile analysis. We examine associations between profile membership and gender and time spent in housework, childcare, and eldercare. We also use competing theories (job enrichment, the effort-reward imbalance model) to investigate profile associations with work-family balance, job ...
Abstract Integrating commitment theories with social exchange theory, a three-wave longitudinal study (N = 534) was conducted to explore the dynamic relationships among organizational justice, perceived organizational support (POS), and commitment profiles [i.e., profiles of affective commitment (AC), normative commitment (NC), high sacrifice (HS) and low alternative (LA) subcomponents of continuance commitment (CC)]. The results of 3-step latent transition analysis indicated that a meaningful p...

Abstract We provide an overview of and guidance for applying exploratory bifactor models to vocational research. First, we describe bifactor models and highlight their potential and actual applications in vocational psychology. Second, we review the theoretical bases of bifactor models and offer methodological guidance to correctly implement and interpret these models in practice. Third, we estimate a bifactor model in two vocational datasets to illustrate the concepts reviewed in this manuscrip...

Abstract Career insecurity is a central topic in career research because many career paths are characterized by high levels of uncertainty. In academia, individuals face not only high levels of insecurity in the early career phase but also the responsibility of managing their careers by themselves. Building on the motivational theory of life-span development and the social cognitive theory of self-regulation, this longitudinal study investigates the relationship between perceived career insecuri...

Abstract A growing evidence base suggests the importance of goal-related intentional self-regulatory (ISR) skills for adolescents' sustained positive development, but there is little research that links teens' ISR skills to their actual goals. As career development is among the most critical goal domains during adolescence, we address this limitation by exploring the relations between youth ISR skills and their career aspirations and expectations. Using three waves of data from the 4-H Study of ...

Abstract Latent profile analysis (LPA) is a categorical latent variable approach that focuses on identifying latent subpopulations within a population based on a certain set of variables. LPA thus assumes that people can be typed with varying degrees of probabilities into categories that have different configural profiles of personal and/or environmental attributes. Within this article, we (a) review the existing applications of LPA within past vocational behavior research; (b) illustrate best p...

Abstract Cross-classified models accommodate data structures that have more than one cluster variable, which are not nested in each other but overlap. They simultaneously consider all clustering variables. This allows one to study effects on several levels at once. Cross-classified data structures are common in various field of applied research (e.g., research on teams, career paths, interventions). The present article demonstrates modeling options and specifications for cross-classified data to...

Abstract Decision making processes and consequent policy decisions of top management teams often have tremendous impact on employee careers and wellbeing, but the difficulty of accessing executive decision making has made studying such processes especially difficult. Whereas scholars have often relied on their own professional networks to gather small samples of executives or leveraged proxy measures compiled from publicly-available documents, we propose and demonstrate an alternative approach w...
