Abstract

The overall goal of this research was to investigate the effect of the decision to pursue a certain career based on a number of vocational counseling sessions on quality of life at work. The study involved 60 subjects of both genders. Participants were asked to complete two questionnaires: Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS) and the Utrecht scale (UWE). They were asked to fill in the questionnaires honestly and were informed that the collected data will remain confidential. It was revealed that those who received vocational counseling are more engaged at work than those who did not receive counseling. The study presented some possible explanations for these findings and future research directions are provided.
