dc.description.abstract In this study, occupational aspirations, expectations, occupational prestige judgments, and sources of occupational information of preparatory school adolescents were investigated. For this investigation, 420 students (Male = 142; female = 278) were randomly selected from two preparatory schools in Addis Ababa. A self report questionnaire and a semi-structured interview were administered to collect data. Descriptive statistics and chi-square were used to analyze quantitative data. Results of the analyses showed that Investigative and Enterprising type occupations were both the most aspired and expected types of natural and social sciences tracked adolescents respectively. Investigative type occupations were judged as prestigious by preparatory school adolescents. It was also found out that the student’s own interest, family and elders were the three successively reported top sources of occupational information for adolescents of Addis Ababa government preparatory schools. The clustering of the adolescents’ choices to only limited categories necessitates establishment of functional structures that assist students in expanding their restricted occupational aspirations, expectations and improve their occupational knowledge beginning in high school en_US
