Our colleague Mariusz Wołonciej was awarded by the Rector of the University of Lodz for his book Vocational interests of youth in Ecuador Inventory of the Occupational Preferences of Youth.




This book aims to support counselors in helping youth to discover their passion and possibly inspire them early, and with current, valid information about vocational interests and the demand in the contemporary job-market and help them plan either additional schooling or reaching the job of their dreams. It presents a new diagnostic tool: the Inventory of Professional Preferences of Youth in Ecuador (IPPJ—Inventario de las Preferencias Profeslonales de los Jovenes en Ecuador), with an introduction on how to better navigate their careers efficiently and successfully, taking into account the contemporary socioeconomic context in Ecuador. The key element of the book is a 15 minute self-assessment tool to help youth discover their professional interests and ideal work. The begins with an overview of the socioeconomic and legal context of occupational guidance in Ecuador. The second chapter presents crucial determinants of career choice with significant role of the profession choice. The third chapter highlights the theoretical assumptions of the questionnaire that are the starting point for the validation procedure of the new diagnostic tool. The fourth chapter presents a detailed description of all crucial steps in the construction of the IPPJ that might serve academic investigators and experts for the development and adaptation of the tool as well as for the longitudinal study of the vocational interests of Ecuadorian students or other related topics and variables. The fifth chapter describes the data normalization results to provide counselors with useful reference data. Additionally, it describes in brief the statistical procedure, calculation and interpretation of results. The final chapter summarizes the methodology and the tool construction process and presents possible challenges and recommendations for the efficient use of the IPPJ questionnaire results in advisory practice in Ecuadorian consulting and educational institutions.
