The rapid changes in life standards and technology affect the social lives of individuals as well as world of work, job finding, work environments and career development. This rapid change also affects individuals' career adaptabilities, professional success and competences. Teaching profession is also affected by these changes. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between pedagogical formation students’ career adaptability and self-esteem. A total of 235 volunteering pedagogical formation students who graduated from different faculties and received pedagogical formation education, including 190 females and 45 males, participated in this study. In order to collect data in the study, Personal Information Form (PIF), Career Adapt-Abilities Scale (CAAS) and Self-Liking/Self-Competence Scale (SLSC) were applied to the participants. The findings of the analyses show that there is a significant and positive relationship between career adaptabilities, self-liking and self-competence. Additionally, in the analysis conducted in order to test the predictability of the career adaptabilities by self-liking and self-competence, they were found to be significant predictors of the pedagogical formation students’ career adaptabilities ( R 2 = .37, p < .01). The findings of the research revealed the need for career counseling once again.

Abstract Much research has sought to understand how people construct their careers; however, only little is known about the career construction of older workers. To understand how people construct their careers in later life, we take a lifespan development perspective on career construction theory. Specifically, we propose and test a model in which we take a closer look at older workers' career adaptability and aging experience (i.e., physical loss, social loss, personal growth, and gaining self...

Abstract Drawing from Career Construction Theory (Savickas, 2013) and Social Cognitive Theory (Bandura, 1986), we examine role modeling as a socialization mechanism that facilitates the transmission of career adaptability across generations. The proposed serial mediation model was tested using 187 grandparent-parent-grandchild triads. Results showed that role modeling mediated the relationships between grandparents', parents', and grandchildren's career adaptability. Furthermore, we found suppor...

AbstractDuring emerging adulthood, one’s sense of well-being undergoes many rapid changes. Although emerging adults often present considerable energy, creativity, and hopefulness, both in higher education classrooms and workplaces, they often experience a decrease in well-being due to experience confusion, stress encounters, and difficulties in transitioning to adulthood. The authors examined four noteworthy key socioemotional factors that may be linked to emerging adults' sense of well-being: c...

Abstract In the current study, we investigated the linkage between career adaptability, academic satisfaction, and intended academic persistence. The psychometric properties of the Career Adapt-Abilities Scale (CAAS) in a sample of undergraduate students from Trinidad and Tobago were also examined. The results provided further support for the incremental validity of the CAAS. We also found that career adaptability was significantly and positively related to intended academic persistence and acad...

Abstract Emotions and confidence are said to play an important role in the career decision-making process. The present study, comprising 472 students attending a large university in the United Kingdom, advances current thinking in this area in two ways. First, by identifying specific emotional intelligence (EI) abilities that are key to decision making, and second, by exploring the role of career decision self-efficacy (CDSE) as a potential mediator in the relationship between EI and career deci...

To investigate the normative trajectory of self-esteem across the life span, this meta-analysis synthesizes the available longitudinal data on mean-level change in self-esteem. The analyses were based on 331 independent samples, including data from 164,868 participants. As effect size measure, we used the standardized mean change d per year. The mean age associated with the effect sizes ranged from 4 to 94 years. Results showed that average levels of self-esteem increased from age 4 to 11 years ...
