Abstract

Although the causes of high turnover are many, ill-planned career development may partially explain the low retention rate among hospitality students in the industry. This study investigated the career development processes of hospitality students by measuring the effects of job-related barriers and coping behaviors on their career decision self-efficacy. Data addresses the importance of career competencies in addition to professional expectations. Results of this study were expected to (a) improve the career assistance provided by hospitality programs, (b) assist students with their career goals, (c) increase effectiveness of career advising, and (d) suggest future studies investigating career barriers of hospitality students.
