ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to develop and validate an instrument to measure the career transition readiness of Korean adults. Based on previous studies, the concept of career transition readiness was refined and sub-factors were selected. Career transition readiness refers to the extent to which a person is prepared to leave his or her current occupation (work) or career path and transition to a different occupation, work, or career path (including unpaid work such as graduate school, being a stay-at-home mom, or volunteering). The five sub-factors of career transition readiness were career identity, career efficacy, emotional support, career risk-taking, and career adaptability. Data were collected from a total of 243 adults aged 25 and over. The data was analyzed using the Rasch model and confirmatory factor analysis. Finally, the researcher validated the Career Transition Readiness Scale, which consists of 19 items and 5 sub-factors. This study provides significant implications in terms of measuring the career transition readiness of adults in Korea in the future, as well as providing prescriptions such as education and training to promote career transition based on the results.
