Abstract:

The retention rate of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA officers is somewhat lower than desired for the efficiency of the organization. The present study is concerned with using the strong vocational interest blank SVIB, in improving the selection of career motivated naval officers. The SVIB and a background questionnaire BQ were administered to samples of retired, resigned, and active duty NOAA officers. The BQ responses and their use are reported.
