Self-concepts and role concepts in the career orientation of college women

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Examined the relationship of 97 college women's self-concepts and role concepts to 9 career orientation variables. Ss were senior class women representing a variety of majors. Data were collected by mailed questionnaires which included a self- and role concept instrument, Eyde's Desire to Work Scale, and other locally devised career orientation measures. It was expected that (a) women with similar self- and career concepts would be career oriented and (b) women with similar self- and homemaker concepts would not be career oriented. Results support the 2nd expectation but not the 1st. The relationship between self- and career concepts and the 2 most valid career orientation variables was somewhat stronger for women with high levels of self-esteem and women with a high level of role differentiation.
