Abstract We examined the process of career transition for a group of teacher trainees in the 2-year Technical and further Education teacher preparation program. Content analysis was used to determine the extent of any significant change in construct use over time, to illustrate the nature of that change, and to examine the literal similarity of constructs over the study period. Results showed there was a change in construct use over time. The literal similarity of the constructs as determined by the content analysis supported the operational similarity of the constructs revealed by a cluster analytic technique in an earlier study. Categories of forcefulness, organization, status, self-sufficiency, and time orientation were identified as important, indicating an emphasis on personal and professional development.
