Abstract:

Because many military recruits are young, unskilled workers, there is a need for assessment of career maturity as part of the recruiting process. An existing pencil-and-paper measure, the Career Maturity Assessment CMA, was validated on Navy recruits, using another existing measure, My Vocational Situation, as the criterion. A computerized version of the CMA was developed, called Career Plans Check-Up, which was validated on Navy recruits, with the CMA as the criterion. The measures were highly correlated. All three instruments measure the same construct, career maturity. Keywords Armed services recruiting, Vocational guidance.
