*WINNER* Career decision-making in college students: A path analysis of early childhood attachment, gender, age, and socioeconomic status
Career decision-making and identifying the associated variables that influence career development has been an area of considerable interest throughout vocational and occupational literature. The purpose of this study was to explore the effect of gender, age, socioeconomic status, and early childhood parental attachment on career decision-making. Participants included 309 college students who completed a demographic questionnaire, the Adult Scale of Parental Attachment-Short Form (ASPA-SF), and My Vocational Situation (MVS). Responses were examined through structural equation modeling using a path analysis in AMOS. Results indicated an overall acceptable model fit and the specific strength the corresponding variables had on career decision-making. Implications and areas for future research are proposed.
