ABSTRACT
A career interest inventory, the Chinese Career Key (CCK) was adapted from the Career Key (Jones, 1987, 1997), which is based on Holland’s theory of vocational choice. The goal was to create a professional-quality career interest inventory for use in China and countries having significant populations of Chinese speaking citizens. This report describes the development of the CCK and its first study at a public high school ( n=101) and a public university ( n=80) in Hong Kong. In general, the research findings support its validity, reliability and user satisfaction among high school and university students in Hong Kong. Cultural differences were explained.
