Career decision process of first generation Vietnamese American college students
by Nguyen, Diem Nancy, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 130; 1522590
Abstract (Summary)

This qualitative study investigates the career decision making process of first generation Vietnamese American college students. Due to the limited body of literature about Vietnamese students as well as the social inclusion of multiple Asian subcultures within the Asian American category, it is necessary to focus on the Vietnamese student population exclusively. This study explores the intricacies of the Vietnamese culture, generational differences, and the various pressures influencing the career navigation process for this student population in the United States. A more individualistic approach in career navigation is a key finding of this study.
