Occupational choice: A conceptual framework.

  • Economics
  • Psychology


The many, varied factors influencing an individual's selection of an occupation are related in a conceptual framework in this article, which endeavors to tie together in a meaningful pattern the economic, psychological, and sociological aspects of the process of job choice. The article does not present, however, a theory of occupational choice; rather, the purpose of the authors is to set up a systematic pattern for empirical research, out of which it may be possible at a future date to develop a theory.
