The transition from high school to college, an apprenticeship, or the workforce is very demanding for adolescents. In this chapter, we explore the factors that contribute to successfully adapting to the many demands of this transition. Building on findings from developmental, social, and vocational psychology, we explore the role of three types of factors for mastering this transition: (1) motivational factors (goal selection and pursuit), (2) personal attributes and attitudes (personality and gender-related attitudes), and (3) context variables (parent modeling). Regarding motivational factors, we build on the model of selection, optimization, and compensation (SOC) and investigate the importance of the selection, pursuit, and maintenance of goals for adapting to the transition. As for personal attributes and attitudes, we argue that traditional gender-related attitudes, although less influential for educational choices, can help to buffer the insecurities adolescents face during this period. Finally, turning to contextual factors, we discuss the influence of parental work participation in different phases of the family life cycle on adolescents’ planning of their future career- and family-related lives.
