Sažetak
Career maturity is a multidimensional construct that represents an individual’s ability to cope with career construction tasks during a particular period of life. In adolescence, a simple indicator of career maturity is the existence of a clear career choice and a commitment to a specific career. Holland (1985) proposed that differentiation and consistency of vocational interests also reflect career maturity, as individuals with differentiated and consistent interests have fewer difficulties in career decision-making and are therefore more likely to express high career maturity. However, the majority of studies have found very weak or negligible correlations between career maturity and differentiation, or between career maturity and consistency of interests. In a recent study Tracey, Wille, Durr, and De Fruyt (2014) criticized the use of conventional measures of differentiation and consistency. They proposed measures derived from the complete RIASEC profile of vocational interests based on the cosine function. Therefore, in this study we explored the relations between career maturity and three career-development constructs—differentiation, consistency of interests, and profile elevation —using both traditional and new measures. We assessed a sample of 568 adolescents in the final year of secondary school (age 17-18) with the Personal Globe Inventory, the Career Choice Clarity Scale, and the Student Career Construction Inventory through an online testing platform. Our results indicate generally low and unsubstantial correlations between various measures of career maturity and measures of differentiation, as well as low correlations between career maturity and consistency. Correlations between measures of career maturity and profile elevation are also low. The results of this study suggest that Holland’s secondary constructs are unrelated to measures of career maturity.
