Recently, new research in vocational interests at work indicates that they play an important role in understanding workplace behavior. This book provides a review of existing theory on the topic and expands on the current literature to propose new models and approaches that clearly outline the links between interest theory and conduct at work. These approaches focus on how interests that influence career choices may play a role in some of the most widely researched topics in organizational psychology, including employee selection, training, motivation, and diversity at work. The book will appeal to researchers and graduate students in the fields of industrial/organizational psychology, management, human resources, and organizational behavior.
