Abstract

The purpose of this study is to search for variables that indicate the differences between the groups, occupation change group, same occupation turnover group, no turnover group. As a variable representing differences, it was classified into psychological variables, job-related variables, and career-related variables to investigate which characteristic variables represent differences between the occupation change group and other groups. For the study, a survey was conducted on male and female occupational workers in the early stage of their careers, divided into three groups according to the difference in career pursuit: occupation change group, same occupation turnover group, no turnover group, and data were collected from 1,002 people except for insincere responses. The results obtained through this study are as follows. First, the variables that differed between the occupation change group and no turnover group are as follows. For psychological variables, openness to experience, extroversion, growth needs, risk-taking tendency, and career-related variables were derived from protein career orientation and occupational identity. Second, the variables that differed between the occupation change group and the same occupation turnover group are as follows. The psychological variables were extroversion and risk-taking, and career-related variables were protein career orientation. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the protean career orientation, which is the value that he or she individuals pursues with the initiative in extroversion, risk sensitivity, and career when changing occupation. Based on the above results, the significance, limitations and suggestions of this study were discussed.
