The purpose of this research was to develop and validate a new instrument, the Dynamic Career Scale (DCS), which measures four different modes of functioning in facing career failures and challenges (mania, envy, manic reparation, and true reparation) according to Klein’s object relations theory. Two studies were respectively conducted on adult working participants (N = 260, Study 1) and newly-qualified psychologists enrolled in a career research program (N = 196, Study 2), to assess reliability...

We investigated (a) the fit and structural equivalence of Holland’s model of six vocational personality types in a sample of South African men (n = 139) and women (n = 268) using the South African Career Interest Inventory, and (b) mean score differences for men and women on these types. The results supported the fit and structural similarity of Holland’s model of vocational personality types for men and women but showed that the model fit the data better for women. The largest differences in th...
The study examines the effectiveness of a career intervention in middle schools. The intervention was organized in eight 45-minute-long group sessions. A quasi-experimental pre- and post-test design was applied, with 120 students in the experimental group and 156 in the control group. Small- to medium-size effects were found in terms of reduction of lack of career information and an increase in independence in career decision-making. The observed effects were stable across gender and for high an...
This study analyzed the mediating effect of well-being between generalized self-efficacy and vocational identity development in a sample of 724 final year bachelor’s students studying in Rawalpindi and Islamabad. Results from a parallel mediation analysis indicated that generalized self-efficacy was indirectly related to vocational identity development through its relationship with four of the six components of psychological well-being (autonomy, positive relations with others, purpose in life a...

Using the Psychology of Working Theory as a guide, the goal of this study was to examine the longitudinal relations of economic deprivation to work volition and work volition to academic satisfaction among college students. We sampled 1508 students and surveyed them at three time points over a 6-month period. We found that economic deprivation partially predicted work volition over time, and work volition consistently predicted academic satisfaction over time. These results have theoretical impl...

This article proposes a model of antecedents and consequences of student satisfaction in Higher Technical-Vocational Education (HTVE) colleges. To validate the model, a survey was conducted with 505 students enrolled in Brazilian HTVE colleges. Structural equation modelling was used to investigate the constructs and their relations. Results indicate that the critical antecedents to student satisfaction are service quality, learning outcomes, employability, image and perceived value. Practical im...

This study examined the impact of intervention components, working alliance, and career indecision on the change in psychological distress during the career counseling processes. Participants were 111 university students who received an average of 3.19 sessions of naturally occurring career counseling. Results indicated that: (a) written exercises in-session, individualized feedback and working alliance significantly predict change in psychological distress; and (b) effects of both career interv...

Empirical and conceptual literature on career and workforce development increasingly cites the importance of connections between policy, research and practice domains. Yet, few if any models inform such collaborations. In the proposed Tripartite Model of Program Evaluation, the inter-play between these three key stakeholder groups is conceptualized within the paradigm of program evaluation in relation to best practices. A case example of an actual application of the model conducted in Turkey is ...

Informed by a self-regulatory perspective, we tested a model (N = 233) in which job (e.g., autonomy), person (e.g., motivation), and study characteristics (e.g., engagement) predicted student job crafting, which, in turn, predicted work-study conflict and facilitation. Job, person, and study characteristics predicted task (46% of variance), cognitive (56%), and relational crafting (25%), and cognitive and relational crafting predicted greater work-study facilitation (53%). When students proactiv...

Vocational identity is a prerequisite for enhancing societal inclusion of at-risk emerging adults. School curricula and rebound programs need insights into individual differences of these youths to effectively foster their vocational identity. Identifying three aspects of vocational identity, a questionnaire study among at-risk emerging adults in The Netherlands (N = 996) examined the relationship between clusters of demographic, personality, self-sufficiency, self-competence, and school engagem...
