Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine whether gender is associated with hospitality undergraduates' perceived career barriers and how gender affects two career-related variables (career decision self-efficacy and tendency to foreclose) when considering internal or external career barriers. Results revealed that female and male students perceived career barriers differently: Females were more sensitive to gender issues than males, whereas males were less likely to explore their career options as fully as females. Implications and recommendations for hospitality educators and career advising are included in this study.
