Description

Career development theory postulates that a client's career choice readiness influences the experience of an interest inventory. This study examined career choice readiness as it related to satisfaction with, retention of, and use of a videotaped interpretation of the Strong Interest Inventory (SII; Hansen & Campbell, 1985). Students (N = 186) from two urban midwestern universities participated in this study. Results indicated that two attitudinal factors of career choice readiness, namely attitudes toward career planning and attitudes toward career exploration, predicted how much and how well clients used their interest inventories. Career choice readiness did not predict immediate satisfaction with the inventory interpretation nor cognitive retention of the inventory results. The discussion of these findings emphasizes differential use of interest inventory results based on the client's degree of career choice readiness.
