Description

This study investigated the relation between leisure: and career development. Data were collected from college freshmen enrolled in required orientation classes (N = 239) at a midwestern stare university. Results indicated that students who perceived themselves as effective, competent and in control of their leisure possessed a clearer picture of their occupational goals, interests, and talents. Furthermore, students who were more committed to the leisure role displayed more highly developed attitudes toward exploring the world-of-work as well as greater competence for career decision making.
