Abstract The current special issue of the Journal of Vocational Behavior focuses on an exploration of decent work in different national contexts. Specifically, the special issue consists of eight papers written by research teams from eight different countries. In each article, researchers developed a reliable instrument to assess decent work with clear evidence of validity within the particular cultural and national context. In addition to the quantitative analyses used to construct the scale an...
Abstract Having college-associated career aspirations has long-term implications for adolescents' education and career attainment. However, important precursors of adolescents' career aspirations, such as academic motivation and performance, decline during middle school and high school, leaving college-associated career aspirations at risk. In our study, we investigated the changes in adolescents' college-related career aspirations from 7th to 11th grade and examined protective factors for negat...

Abstract Working mothers often experience guilt when balancing work and family responsibilities. We examined consequences of work-family guilt with an interview study (N = 28) and daily diary study (N = 123). The interview study revealed that as a result of work-family guilt, parents tended to either reappraise the situation (e.g., emphasizing financial importance of work) or compensate for their guilt by adapting their parenting, adapting their work, and by sacrificing their leisure. Consistent...

Abstract The current research set out to understand the stereotypes individuals hold about occupations, and to examine how occupational segregation is related to incongruences between demographic and occupational stereotypes. In Study 1, we applied the Stereotype Content Model (SCM) to develop a novel classification of occupational stereotypes based on the dimensions of warmth and competence. We found evidence that occupations are reliably stereotyped along the dimensions of warmth and competenc...
Abstract Requests for flexible work practices have become commonplace, with the aim of helping employees perform more effectively in both their private and work lives. One path for employees to secure flexible work is through the negotiation of individualized work arrangements, also known as “i-deals”. This study provides valuable insights into the nomological network of schedule-flexibility i-deals by drawing on the Conservation of Resources (COR) theory. We propose that, via resource accumulat...

Abstract In this study, we examine the relationship between perceived overqualification and life satisfaction of an employee's close social ties, as mediated by employee's perceived career performance and life satisfaction. Further, we propose that close social ties' perceptions of organizational prestige moderates this mediating process. In a sample of 118 employees from a Greek organization in the gambling industry and their close social ties (i.e., spouses, romantic partners, parents, sibling...
Abstract This mixed methods study investigated how decent work is conceptualized and understood in South Korea by surveying 320 Korean working adults. Using a convergent parallel mixed methods design, qualitative and quantitative parts of the study were conducted concurrently. Emic conceptualizations of decent work were qualitatively explored, and compared with the quantitative findings from administrating the Korean-translated version of Duffy et al.'s (2017) Decent Work Scale. Internal consist...

Abstract To clarify how work and non-work role conflicts are processed and produce psychological change, we propose an integrative theory of work-family conflict (WFC) episode processing. We clarify ambiguities around the meaning of WFC, overcome questionable research assumptions, make testable counter-normative predictions, reconcile “levels” and “episodes” WFC conceptions, and explain how WFC can even have a net positive effect for the person. In the model, a trigger event causes a perceived W...
Abstract The formation of occupational aspirations is an important developmental task during adolescence, and aspirations are an important predictor of occupational attainment in adulthood. This paper investigates the formation and development of occupational aspirations in a tracked educational system. We focus on the social status of occupations and take Switzerland as an example. We use data of the Swiss Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth to examine how characteristics of the education...

Abstract Prior research demonstrated that narcissism fosters the attainment of higher managerial ranks in organizations. However, it is not known whether climbing the corporate ladder also fosters the development of narcissism over time. Whereas prior work consistently adopted a unidirectional perspective on narcissism and career attainment, this study presents and tests a bidirectional perspective, incorporating long-term development in narcissism in relation to and in response to long-term upw...
