Abstract : The present study examined the use of thirteen information sources for career planning activities in a sample of 2859 Navy Officers. Based on component analysis, four use dimensions were identified and were related to the attributes of perceived source accuracy, honesty, and availability. The results indicate differences in usage frequency, but with source being positively correlated with source attributes. However, separate source regressions made for use indicate that only accuracy and availability of the information source predict source use. These results generally agree with prior research in the decision making area. (Author)
