Development of Career Commitment in College Women by Geraldine O Garner( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Cooperative education (Co-Op) programs have been used at the college level in order to facilitate the transition from school to work. Studies have shown that such programs increase student motivation, better integrate theory and practice, aid development of maturity, foster greater human relations skills, and orient students to the world of work. It was also found that cooperative education can play an important role in career education, particularly in the areas of career selection and preparation, career plans, and careeer advancement. In addition, it appeared that Co-Op had differential outcomes for women and minorities. As a result of a multi-phased analysis, it was concluded that cooperative education college women developed provisional career commitment between the ages of 18 and 25. Seventy-three percent of the women in the program demonstrated some form of career commitment. Further, it was found that Co-Op women who demonstrated commitment could be distinguished from Co-Op women who did not on the basis of nine variables. Those variables were age, type of school (two- or four-year), type of major, grade point average, level of educational attainment, specific job characteristics (self-control, responsibility, and challenge), importance of education, importance of work during college, and career goals. As a result of this study, it was possible to identify variables that contribute to the career commitment of women during the college years. The study has implications for the role of counselors in guiding young women into college Co-Op programs. (Kc)
