Using the career orientations inventory (COI) for measuring internal career orientations in the South African organisational context
Melinde Coetzee,Dries Schreuder
South African Journal of Industrial Psychology , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/sajip.v35i1.806
Abstract: This study investigated the use of the Career Orientations Inventory as a measure to determine the career orientations of a random sample of 2 978 participants at predominantly managerial and supervisory level in the service industry. Whereas an exploratory factor analysis yielded a nine-factor structure, a confirmatory factor analysis confirmed five constructs as measures of the career orientations domain. A similar factorial pattern was observed across the African and white groups and a weaker factorial pattern across the Indian and coloured groups. The findings of this study contribute valuable new knowledge to both the practice and the field of Career Psychology. How to cite this article: Coetzee, M., & Schreuder, D. (2009).

The influence of career orientations on subjective work experiences
Melinde Coetzee,Ziel Bergh,Dries Schreuder
South African Journal of Human Resource Management , 2010, DOI: 10.4102/sajhrm.v8i1.279
Abstract: Orientation: In an increasingly turbulent business context in which people are less dependent on organisational career arrangements and have greater agency in career decisions, organisations have come to pay increasing attention to retaining valuable talented managerial potential. Research purpose: The study empirically assessed the causal influence of individuals’ career orientations on their perceived life satisfaction, job or career satisfaction, sense of happiness and their perceptions of work as a valuable activity as aspects of their subjective work experiences. Motivation for study: From an organisational perspective, research on individuals’ inner definitions of career success and satisfaction is needed to guide current selection, placement, development, reward and retention practices. Research design, approach and method: A quantitative survey was conducted on a random sample of 2997 participants at predominantly managerial and supervisory level in the service industry. The measuring instruments consisted of an adapted five-factor career orientations model of the Career Orientations Inventory and a 4-item global subjective work experiences scale. Structural equation modelling (SEM) was conducted to achieve the aim of the study. Main findings/results: Statistically significant causal relationships were observed between the career orientations and subjective work experiences variables. Practical implications: Individuals’ career orientations influence their general sense of life and job or career satisfaction, happiness and perceptions of work as a valuable activity. Organisations concerned with the retention of staff need to find a way of aligning individuals’ career needs and motives with the goals and aspirations of the organisation. Contribution/value-add: The research confirms the need for assessing the inner career orientations of employees as these provide valuable information regarding the motives and values driving individuals’ career decision making and subjective experiences of their working lives.

Entrepreneurial Knowledge and the Influence of Entrepreneurship Education on Students’ Entrepreneurial Abilities  [PDF]
Changqing Lai, Wenjing lv, Yuning Jiang
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.37001

This paper studies the influence of entrepreneurship education on students’ entrepreneurial abilities from the perspective of social network. In four college students’ entrepreneurship case studies from one university, we adopted methodological triangulation and multiple methods to guarantee the reliability and validity of the research. We proposed that courses and projects in entrepreneurship education formed social network among mentors, monitors, and students, in which knowledge could flow frequently. We then discussed the influence of projects pattern, mentor pattern, and monitors pattern on college students’ entrepreneurial abilities respectively, by analyzing the structure and ties of the social network. This research contributed to social network theory and entrepreneurship education both theoretically and practically.

Yun Duan, Yangyu Zhang, Jingjing Zhang
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2018.612018
Abstract: The entrepreneurial identity of team members is vital to team stability and entrepreneurial success. How to improve the identity of team members is a significant issue for entrepreneurs to ponder. Combining literature analysis and empirical research, this paper discusses the following issues: 1) Whether the entrepreneur’s self-disclosure has a positive impact on the members’ entrepreneurial identity; 2) The internal mechanism of how entrepreneur’s self-disclosure affects the team members’ entrepreneurial identity. The results show that in the context of entrepreneurship in China, the self-disclosure of entrepreneurs can promote the entrepreneurial identity of the team members, and the entrepreneurial passion mediates the relationship between them.
