A Study of Careers Decision Making Process of Hong Kong Secondary School Students Using Harren’s Model
Chung-Park AU & Choi-Man CHUNG（歐松柏、鍾財文）
This research applied the Harren's model of careers decision making process to investigate the relative influence of vocational identity, attitudinal careers maturity, school adjustment and decision making styles on careers decision making progress. Path analysis revealed that vocational identity had the strongest direct effect on both the attitudinal careers maturity and careers decision making progress. It was found that rational style would enhance progress in the careers decision making process more effectively than the intuitive and the dependent styles. It was surprisingly found that school adjustment had no direct causual effect on careers decision making progress.
