This study analyzes homeless veterans' career beliefs and suggests how these beliefs may limit their employability. Using the Career Beliefs Inventory (CBI), the vocational beliefs of 279 homeless veterans were compared to those of two control groups: one employed (N = 390), the other unemployed (N = 67). Even though the three groups had significant demographic, medical, and social differences, there were remarkable similarities in how they viewed employment. Further research on how homeless veterans' vocational attitudes manifest into tangible behavior is required to substantiate the importance of the CBI results. (Authors)
