The Role of Internship Participation and Conscientiousness in Developing Career Adaptability: A Five-Wave Growth Mixture Model Analysis
April 5, 2020 @ 3:00 pm CDT
Wednesday, August 5, 2020
Special Guest: Carmella Ocampo (Australian National University)
In this webinar, CCWT’s Zi Chen spoke with Carmella Ocampo, the lead author of a new study on the impacts of internship participation on a widely studied psycho-social variable in vocational psychology—that of career adaptability—which refers to the psychological resources one has to deal with uncertain and evolving situations. Since our current moment of the COVID-19 pandemic and a looming recession will create such an uncertain and difficult situation for college graduates, understanding the experiences and resources that can help students develop these resources will be critically important.
Carmella Ocampo is a PhD Candidate in Organizational Behavior in the Research School of Management at the Australian National University. At the broad level, Carell studies how personality traits, emotional abilities, and social contexts support or stifle individual goal pursuit efforts in the context of work and careers.
