Abstract


Guided by Super’s (1990) theory and Schein’s (1978) model and using data from the 2000 World Values Survey, this study examines whether or not Filipino workers with different demographic and work profiles vary significantly in their career considerations. Based on the results of the bivariate analyses, education and work classification appear to have stronger impact on the amount of importance the respondents placed on different career anchors, as compared to other demographic and work profile variables.
