IMPORTANCE OF MOTIVATION IN PREPARING UNIVERSITY STUDENTS FOR FUTURE CAREER

Abstrakt:

A career choice is a very important, deciding point in the life of a young person. The already lengthy academic discussion on the structure of motivation for a career is relevant in its conclusions. As was already mentioned, in modern society the intrinsically motivated professional is desirable. The study is aimed to discover the career motivation drivers of Slovak university students. Connection between instrumental, cognitive and social motivation is compared with selection of variables: gender, education level, duration of studies. Empirical survey was conducted on a sample of one hundred and thirty respondents coming from Slovak universities. The findings showed that there is a direct correlation between instrumental, cognitive motivation and the time spent studying, however the findings are not statistically significant.
