dc.description.abstractThis qualitative study, grounded in the methodological traditions associated with Black Feminist Theory and Career Constructivist Theory, incorporates the use of storytelling and narratives to identify the factors that influence career decision making among African American women. The researcher utilized semi-structured interviews to elicit stories from participants regarding their experiences as they engaged in the career decision making process. Through the use of narrative analysis, the researcher concluded that pursuit of happiness/interest, exposure to the field through work experience, financial security, and parental direction emerged as factors that influenced career decision making among the participants.
