Yesim Avunduk, Alpaslan Baki Ertekin


The study aimed to examine the career attitudes of young individuals by certain variables. The study sample consisted of 173 volunteer students, 105 (60.7%) male and 68 (39.3%) female, studying at the Department of Sports Management of Istanbul University-Cerrahpaşa Sports Sciences Faculty. In addition to a personal information form, the “Career Future Inventory (CFI)” developed by Rottinghaus, Day, and Borgen (2005) was used in the study. The validity and reliability study of the tool was conducted by Kalafat (2012). The CFI is a 5-point Likert type scale including 25 items and 3 sub-dimensions. To the Kolmogorov-Smirnov normality test results, the data did not have a normal distribution, so the Mann-Whitney U test was applied for the analysis of bivariate data, and the Kruskall Wallis test for more than two variables. Significant differences were found between CFI sub-dimensions by gender, grade level and academic grade point averages. It was concluded that career planning attitudes of young individuals varied by certain variables, and academic achievement affected career attitudes.
