Abstract
Objectives: This study aimed to identify professional interests and vocational self-concept and the effect of gender and achievement on both of them. Methods: The study employed the descriptive correlational method. The study sample consisted of 350 male and female students. The sample was randomly selected using the cluster random method. To meet the goals, a professional interests scale and a professional self-concept scale were developed, and their psychometric characteristics were verified. Results: The results also showed statistically significant differences in the degree of professional interests attributed to sex in favor of males, while there were no statistically significant differences in vocational self-concept attributed to sex. Significant differences were found in professional interests based on academic achievement. Students with acceptable achievement differ from those with excellent achievement as do students with good achievement from those with excellent achievement. However, there were no statistically significant differences in the vocational self-concept attributed to academic achievement. Conclusions: The study recommends that the culture of professional interests be enhanced among students.
