Individual's Perception of Career Development and Job Burnout Among Flight Attendants in Taiwan

This study uses the example of flight attendants in Taiwan to examine perception of career development and its effect on job burnout. Survey data was collected from 358 Taiwan flight attendants. Questionnaires included established and self-developed measurement scales. The career development dimension included career choice satisfaction, career satisfaction and confidence of career future. The job burnout dimension included exhaustion, cynicism and professional efficacy. Results indicated that career choice satisfaction and confidence of career future were significantly predictive of all three dimensions of job burnout, with the exception that career satisfaction did not show a significant effect on professional efficacy. Career development accounted for significant portions of variance on job burnout. These findings suggest that organizations need to assist employees in achieving personal career management goals.
