It believed that the following factors affect career development of college students. These are:
1. career counselling
2. environmental factors
3. hereditary factors
4. educational factors
I want to study the relationships of the factors to career development. What kind of statistical technique should I use? Thank you.
Relevant answer
Answer
From another Lilian:
It’s not clear how advanced your research design is advanced at this moment. The question of what kind of statistic to use is the last step, it is not the first step, even if that is the first question your supervisor asks you. Statistics is the answer to “how”; before that cones the question of “what“ do you want to research? Examples:1. do you want to find out if these factors are indeed important for career development?
2. Do you want to know which are the most important?
3. How do you want to measure it? Ask people’s opinions? Do people really know what influenced them? Are you going to ask alumni to retrospect? Are you going to ask students what they experience as being helpful? Are you going to ask what they want? Past/present/future.
Will you make a questionnaire and ask them to give a score? Or will you ask them to write a story and then you analyse to see which factors you recognise in their stories?
All these kind of choices will decide if you need statistics, what kind of statistics. I hope this helps in some way.

Any suggestions on how to pivot to policy making?
I saw that there are PhD about it, but I'm not sure to be qualified for them.
How could I increase the chances of being admitted to one without pursuing another master?
I'm finishing a double master in plant sciences and plant biotechnology at Wageningen University & Research. My specialisations are functional plant genomics and phytopathology and entomology, with a minor in nematology and one still to define (around biophysics and omics).
I did a thesis in nematology at the ETH Zurich, one in plant molecular biology at INRAE (French national institute for Agro-Environmental research) and one still to define at SLU (Swedish Agricultural University).
I'd like to pivot toward policy making, but I only have a few courses about transversal skills such as "Negotiation skills", "Communication & Persuasion", "Scientific Writing" etc. and none about policy itself.
Relevant answer
Answer
Great suggestion by Sally Elkady . I would suggest that you get into a PhD program focusing on Transdisciplinary research which straddles both policy-making and Biology. You have studied Phytobiology ( plant ecology), entomology, and genomics. I think it is a great combo to explore the impact of GM seeds and variants on friendly insects and plant ecology. This is exactly what is needed to influence policy. Your research comes would be suggested policy direction or changes that would ensure that ecology and friendly insects are protected for sustainable farming. Hope this helps.

Hi!
I’m disillusioned by the emphasis on the frantic continuously changing rat race work culture. In my remote job search now, I’m looking for alternative models that fit with people, like myself, who work better in a steady environment. I’m compiling a list of companies that embrace this , or at least tolerate it .
Would you suggest any companies that fit this description?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think that this frantic pace of change, as you described, is an outcome of environmental changes, meaning, companies that operate in very dynamic industries are forced to adjust quicker. Focus on more traditional industries, in which technology does not evolve that quickly, if you are looking for more steady working environments. I hope this helps, Hashem Elassad , good luck!

I started my career with a bachelor's degree in commerce. Then I pursued certificate courses on financial accounting and information technology. It was followed by a diploma in financial accounting, a post graduate diploma in business finance and a certificate in accounting. At that time I was working as a teacher of financial accounting.
Then I completed a management program called GPBL and a post graduate diploma in business administration, both with specialization in marketing. In my work place, I was given the responsibility to head a division that dealt with distribution of electronic devices.
After all these I completed a certificate course in HR skills and a MBA in HR. I had a new job and was the deputy head of the department of franchisee operations in a world famous vocational training institute. I was also given the responsibility of staff training in the franchisees and corporate communication with the industry experts.
Then I completed a 1 day MBA in strategic management and started my career as a professional researcher and lecturer.
Having education of different disciplines has helped me in my career progression.
Please, share with me your experiences and ideas about this matter.

Answer
Dear Dr. Anamitra Roy , I find the view of Dr. Aman Arora worth attention. Like a pendulum that swings from one end to the other end humankind has also swinging from Super-specialization to Multidisciplinary focus. Until, 1776 when Adam Smith proposed the Division of Labour & Specialization in his book "An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations" - we were following multidisciplinary approach. The concept of specialization has gathered momentum in late 1900s. Now, (it seems) we have reached the extreme point of this pendulum.
In India (also, around the globe) there is a new found desire to implement multidisciplinary approach in education.
I welcome this. I think, anything in excess is not good. Anything, in a measure is a treasure.

I would like to hear your opinions regarding sharpening the orientation of my career by focusing on what matters most just looking at the trends and how the world is changing.
Actually, I did Quantity Surveying/Construction Management (cost engineering) and mastering now in Global Logistics.
I want to combine these two into a long term business focusing on Digital World (I love business).
Thank you
Relevant answer
Answer
I propose the implementation of research development in the field of Global Logistics with the use of new information technologies, ICT, Internet and Industry 4.0, including IoT technologies, cloud computing, Big Data Analytics, etc. The use of these technologies allows for shortening logistic chains and the development of e-logistics. These processes may be helpful in transforming logistics in the context of the current SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic. In addition, the research carried out can include the analysis of determinants of the transformation of traditional logistics towards sustainable green logistics. So I propose to take into account the above issues in future scientific research.

I found this quotation of Steven Jay Gould on the internet. I am pretty much intrigued by this quotation. Please share your thoughts about this quotation.
How severe is the case in your country that many potential scientists and researchers could not achieve success and got derailed in their lives (due to lack of proper education, training, facilities, government sponsorship, poverty, vulnerability, etc.)?
(I mention my student Samir Ashraf, who gave some first thoughts about it).
Relevant answer
Answer
Einstein is in my opinion a rather poor, if striking, starting point for this discussion.
Indeed, if we follow Thomas Kuhn distinction of ‘normal’ phases of scientific development vs. ‘scientific revolutions’ involving a deep paradigm change, Einstein is very much the archetype of a paradigm-changer. But there are very few true scientific revolutions, typically one a century or less, and their possibility is less a question of ‘talent’ of the scientists that initiate them (even it it does certainly call for quite a bit of genius) than of the convergence of many parameters yielding a kind of embrittlement of the old paradigm.
So in this sense, no, there couldn’t have been many potential Einsteins in the cotton fields : there simply wasn’t room for them in science between, say, Newton and Einstein.
On the other hand, if the question is ‘were there potentially highly talented young people in the cotton fields who never had the possibility to develop their talent for science’, it does indeed seem obvious. And Gould is absolutely right to suggest that, if we want more scientific progress, we should certainly start studying ways to let more potential scientific talents fructify rather than how Einstein’s synapses may have worked.
Also, to quote Robert Heinlein :
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck."

Dear Colleagues! In your opinion, how possible (and justified) is the implementation of the concept of Life Long Learning in the academic field by preparing and defending a second (third, etc.) doctoral dissertation in a new direction for a scientist? Do you know and can you give examples of such a scientific career development?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi!
I do not associate the term Life-long-learning with any general right for an academic to do a series of doctoral dissertations in various directions. A doctoral students education and support is a big investment for the state/the taxpayers, the university and the individual. To reach a PhD level is for an individual to be recognised for the ability to really both learn and create new knowledge on ones own.
Then other students should get the possibility to PhD studies. There is possibility to change directions of interest in research anyway.
I don’t want to criticise people who have double PhDs, but to create new possibilities for academics to make a number of dissertations in different subjects is probably not an ideal use of resources.

A Primary Author Citation Index (PACI) or p-index, proposed here, would not count citations of published works by scientists, but would instead determine the proportion (percentage) of all published works [with at least 1 citation] by a scientist for which the scientist is senior (first) author on the publication, regardless of the number of authors on each individual publication (included in the p-index calculation). The intended primary purpose of the p-index is to determine the proportion of a scientist's career publications that the scientist actually contributed to writing the majority portion of the publication (for which the first or primary author is most responsible and credited). The p-index value attempts to quantify a scientist's career accomplishments in terms of completing the entire research cycle, culminating with the actual primary (substantial) writing of all final research and related products (study results and other types of publications). Please do not respond by addressing the many problems associated with undue credit given to scientists in positions of power (over subordinate scientists) or different conventions, policies, or ethics used in determining authorship order (such as which scientists got the grant, did most of the research, or collected most of the data presented in a paper); and please refrain from giving unconstructive opinions.

hi i have recently answered a similar question , i give u the same answer hope it will be what you have been looking for
I believe you should first analyze your structure by assuming the said parameters as 1 , after the analysis check the stress contours for both , if the stress surpassed the the concrete strength you should then apply the modifiers which are given in codes ,for instance ACI suggests 0.35 and 0.7 for bending and compression
this is what we do in a normal concrete shear wall , i don't think there is a difference when u have steel boundary elements but if you don't want to take the risk i suggest check if there was a finite element model about it ,
or model 1 for yourself and and check if stiffness degradation is the same after cracking (note that you should analyze in a manner so the concrete will crack) then you use your own modifiers since it has research backgrounds

What are the Different Resume Formats? and is there a preferred format for applying for a job as academic staff member, researcher, and it professional? What Is the Difference Between a Resume and a CV?
Best regards
Sarmad.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Sarmad
RESUME
Resume is a French word meaning "summary". A resume is ideally a summary of one's education, skills and employment when applying for a new job. A resume does not list out all details of a profile, but only some specific skills customized to the target job profile. It thus, is usually 1 or at the max 2 pages long. A resume is usually written in the third person to give it an objective and formal tone.
Structure: A good resume would start with a Brief Profile of the candidate, Summary of Qualifications, followed by Industry Expertise and then Professional Experience in reverse chronological order. Focus is on the most recent experiences (with responsibilities and accomplishments), and previous experiences are only presented as a summary. This would be followed by Education details and/or Professional Affiliations and/or Voluntary Initiatives.
C.V. - CURRICULUM VITAE
Curriculum Vitae is a Latin word meaning "course of life". It is more detailed than a resume, generally 2 to 3 pages, or even longer as per the requirement. A C.V. lists out every skill, all the jobs and positions held, degrees, professional affiliations the applicant has acquired, and in chronological order. A C.V. is used to highlight the general talent of the candidate rather than specific skills for a specific position.

Answer
It depends very much on the country and the field you want to teach. In most (if not all) of the European countries you can not teach in elementary, primary and secondary schools without having masters in education. If you teach at universities, the PhD is many times the basic prerequisite to get a job. But if you would like to teach at teachers colleges, you would most likely need the M.Ed. as well. I would definitely check particular country for reaquirements to get a particular job.

Hello, I am a researcher in UC Berkeley. As an experimentalist, from day to day, I just suffered from lots of things in my research, for example, I sometimes found there not sufficient components for my experiment setup, so I have to order and wait for the shipping.
But more importantly, in my research career, I found writing a paper is time consuming in making nice graphs and checking grammar problems. The first time writing cover letter is also a rough experience, not too much guidance from the advisor as he is super busy. Also, the way how journal review papers just consumes a lot of time, which is where I am stuck.
So just curious what are your painful moments? which of them are really low-efficient in your opinion?
Relevant answer
Answer
Where do I start...? :) One big frustration is that the majority of conferences and journals don't have a feedback mechanism for reviews. That is, you have no way to defend your paper to reviewers who misunderstood it. Another frustration is that there are periods when you will have to keep working in absence of proper funding. Another is the very slow return of investment, it may take many years before a piece of work receives recognition. Another is the difficulty to find like-minded enthusiastic people to collaborate with unless you are lucky to work in a large research group. On the other hand, it is like any other job, you need to have strength and be persistent in your effort.

I have been working on my dissertation research project that aims to explore the concept of 'calling' in Indonesian context, predominantly among the Muslim teachers. In this vein, it seeks to rectify the omission of a focus on non-Western context to study this construct, thus attempting to provide a more nuanced picture of the key facets of calling. 
Does anyone perhaps have an interview schedule for examining people's sense of calling in their work from which I can leverage? Of course, it will be tailored to meet the objectives and core questions of my research, and, to uphold our academic values, I can assure for its confidentiality. Hope for your kind support.
Please accept my sincerest thank you in advance.

Dear colleague, you may find the semi-structured My Career Chapter (MCC; McIlveen, 2006) useful for your purposes. MCC is administered as a written activity that involves reflective conversations with self and others (perhaps an interviewer). MCC can be used for career counselling or career education with students and clients. MCC may also serve as a tool to collect data, which is how it  may be useful for you.
I have attached a link to the My Career Chapter booklet which you can use under a Creative Commons license and links to author versions of some of the papers that describe its applications.

A literature review is not an annotated bibliography in which you summarize briefly each article that you have reviewed. While a summary of what you have read is contained within the literature review, it goes well beyond merely summarizing studies. It focuses on a specific topic of interest to you and includes a critical analysis of the relationship among different works, and relating this research to your work. It may be written as a stand-alone paper or to provide a theoretical framework and rationale for a research study (such as a thesis or dissertation). (Mongan-Rallis, 2006)
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi, Houda,
The challenge in answering your question is the context for which you are intending the literature review. At the highest level, a literature review should meet the criterion for a Campbell/Cochrane review - comprehensive, objective, replicable, and transparent. These are very high standards and are probably most relevant to the preparation of a doctoral dissertation or a career capstone project in which a researcher is attempting to add to the Campbell/Cochrane libraries.
When preparing a literature review for a small research project, the key is to find a good systematic review or meta-analysis upon which to anchor the project. The literature review is then focused on the most recent addenda to this anchor.
By "critical process" I assume you are referring to the analysis, synthesis, and creative interpretation of prior research. For this there is simply no simple or direct path. Mastery of prior research findings must travel the slow pathway of Bloom's taxonomy - building slowly up the chain from remembering to understanding to applying to analyzing to evaluating/synthesizing to creating. This is, after all, the entire academic endeavor regardless of our disciplinary focus.

Hi guys
It's me again. Currently - I have been doing research about the airline self-service technologies. I am writing about how passengers perceive the SSTs and how can they change the passengers travel experience. I have found few gaps in Literature review - I have found that there is no a lot research about how passengers can be actually convinced to use the SSts or what type of passengers can be more likely  keen to use SSTs. 
I think these are good gaps that I could focus and base  my primary research on but sometimes I feel these topics can be only used for my recommendations for future research... Is anyone of you have any suggestions? What exactly you mean by gap? Is there anything you feel it hasn't been discovered in the Self-service matter ?
Thanks in advance for your help xx
Relevant answer
Answer
I have noticed a growing number of self service kiosks at airports, fewer real persons to help, and a tendency for the "helpers" to say "use the self service kiosk." They do this even when they are not obviously busy. I think it is part of the protocol to avoid error. (I believe the human agent is error prone -- I was recently issued the wrong boarding card for a person with a similar name to mine.) 
So I am actually reasonably happy to use the self service computer and the ability of these kiosks to handle most situations has improved greatly (for example can do a passport scan). I think that effort should not need to be wasted on persuasion -- rather -- put more, and more capable self service devices in play and maintain them well. Then have good human back up agents to help when needed and to issue bag checks.
These systems are very vulnerable to a computer glitch however. Some study on resilience and back up methods would be useful. Also standard queuing theory measures to see how this M server queue works.

Well, I have been writing a literature review about evolutionary organizations and their structure of self-managed Teams. Have you already heard about Frederic Laloux? He has collected data from different outperforming enterprises, which applied new methods of working to achieve higher involvement, adaptation, problem-solving, motivation and outcomes. Self-organization, self-management, emphasis on purpose, stakeholder approach and flat hierarchies are some of the main points. The book (Reinventing Organizations, 2015) includes mainly anecdotical evidence, but I have found empirical proofs for the most of his claims. Holacracy is a quite new organizational structure tool, wich seems to reach this goals solving the problems of inter-group coordination with new technologies (a kind of intranet, where employees can change their roles, show their task progress and benefit form the learning developments of other teams). This seems an adequate and interesting option to me for the kind of organization you are presenting. You may be dealing with Millenials in a fast-changing environment, this kind of structure allows the highest flexibility and fit perfectly for high-level learning units. An important moderator for the success of the implementation seems to be anyway the attitude towards the goals to be reached with this change. I mean, that implementing high levels of empowerment just because of their impact on effectiveness may lead (paradoxically) to inferior levels of effectiveness, as implementing because of the win-win situation for the development of the persons working in the system and the improved attainment of the organizational purpose. I really would like to know your opinion on this topic. Kind regards from Switzerland!

My former topic is "Job Satisfaction of Health Assistants in Myanmar: Country wide study"; in which I will study a 4-year course bachelor degree holder who are assigned as Health Assistants and blocked their career development in terms of education and promotion. However it will be very difficult to manage within a short time to get a permission of Ministry of Health as far as I try my best. So I want to change my topic to highlight professional dissatisfaction of those para-medical degree holders in quantitative way of research. Please suggest me what kind of topic I should use for my problem.
Current number working as Gov staff  (Health Assistant)- 756
Job attrition number - 142
Alumni waiting for Gov job- 450 students
Health Assistants in Myanmar is different with other countries, they learned Medicine, Surgery, Epidemiology, Bio statistics, behavioral sciences and researches. But all of them dissatisfied of being their status, trying to quit job day by day. The worst thing is that they're never proud of their status under discrimination and stigmatization even Non-government jobs.
Please share your idea what kinds of research title I should do. For me, qualitative survey is not possible. Appreciate for each and every suggestions to my question. Thanks
Relevant answer
Answer
I realise that you have said that a qualitative survey is not possible, but I am not sure what a purely quantitative approach could tell you. A measure of job satisfaction would show that average job satisfaction is at a particular level - but unless you have a validated scale with norms for Myanmar that's not really very informative.
However, I think you could learn a lot from some focused (in depth) qualitative research that explored and described the issues that they experience and what the consequences are (in terms of motivation, decisions to stay or leave the job etc.) . Access to a relatively small number of people might be sufficient (10-15 say). I realise that there is a very specific skill set required but it also feels like the most appropriate approach to exploring the issues from the perspective of the assistants themselves.
You say you want to highlight the job dissatisfaction -   I think whatever approach to research you take you should aim to explore the sources of satisfaction / dissatisfaction If you are right that satisfaction is low,  it will likely take you to the same place but it will make it sound less as if you have predetermined the answer. people can surprise you!

Hello Adnan. You might take a look at work done with Social Cognitive Career Theory as an initial approach. See:
Lent, R. W., Brown, S. D., & Hackett, G. (1994). Towards a Unifying Social Cognitive Theory of Career and Academic Interest, Choice, and Performance. Journal of Vocational Behaviour, 45, 79-122.
Lent, R. W., Brown, S. D., & Hackett, G. (2000). Contextual Supports and Barriers to Career Choice: A Social Cognitive Analysis. Journal of Counseling Psychology, 47(1), 36-49.
Another theory with a long pedigree of empirical work is expectancy-value theory (EVT). Whilst it provides an overarching model on motivated achievement choice, it does include cultural domains and specifies how (and in what direction) it effects choice. While many studies are about course selection, it has moved into the the domain of career choice. The most recent EVT model can be found in:
Simpkins, S., Fredricks, J., & Eccles, J. S. (2015). The Role of Parents in the Ontogeny of Achievement-Related Motivation and Behavioral Choices (P. J. Bauer Ed. Vol. 80): Wiley-Blackwell.
An example of an author who is using it in a specific career domain is:
Watt, H. M. G., & Richardson, P. W. (2007). Motivational factors influencing teaching as a career choice: Development and validation of the FIT-Choice scale. The Journal of Experimental Education, 75(3), 167-202. doi: 10.3200/JEXE.75.3.167-202

For a different perspective, it may be worth considering the recent work by Ryan Duffy and Bryan Dik who have conducted solid conceptual and empirical research into the notion of calling.  Their approach to calling is wider than the religious notion (although it can cover this form of calling too).  One may speculate that the presence of or search for a calling influences salary expectations.  My suggestion to you is a departure from the notion of salience as conceived of by Super et al., but I hope it provides an additional point of view for you.  Here are some papers that may be of interest:
