"As long as I have a job that does not feel soul-destroying..." : Young people in adult education and their thoughts on career (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att belysa unga komvux studerandes syn på sin nuvarande karriär och framtida karriärmöjligheter. Urvalet bestod av ungdomar mellan 20-24 år som studerade heltid minst fem kurser på ett komvux inom Stockholms län. Metoden som tillämpades var kvalitativ i form av semistrukturerade intervjuer. Utgångspunkten var att ge en inblick i individens inre värld med fokus på vilka inre faktorer som spelar in vid karriärvalsprocessen. Resultaten visar att ungdomarnas främsta mål är att höja sina gymnasiebetyg för att ta sig in på olika yrkesinriktade högskoleutbildningar. De viktigaste inre faktorerna som framkom var att trivas med sitt yrke/arbete, göra det man själv tyckte var roligt, varierande arbetsuppgifter, möjlighet att resa samt hjälpa människor. Pengar och status ansågs av flertalet som oviktiga faktorer. I resultat uppkom även att ungdomarna hade i enlighet med modern karriärutvecklingsteori både individualistiska arbetsvärderingar samt kollektivt inriktade arbetsvärderingar.
