Abstract

With the mounting labor shortage of the growing gaming industry and its related sectors in Macao, more students are joining the labor market during the school term. What would be the psychological cost of such prevailing students' part-time employment? Numerous studies have been done on demonstrating the importance of the perceived sense of school belongings and its various academic correlates, yet its relationship with student part-time employment was rarely studied. In light of this, the current study aimed at exploring the negative effect of students' part-time employment in the perceived sense of school belonging. A total of 164 undergraduate students (124 females and 40 males) working part-time were recruited in Macao, over 32% of them worked more than 19 hours per week. Findings of hierarchical regression analyses showed that students' part-time job involvement was a significant negative factor of sense of school belonging, after controlling for demographics and other individuals' characteristics including peer relationship, depression and GPA. The implications of the findings and the remedy measures to foster perceived belongings at school were also discussed.

Other Abstract

因為博彩及相關行業發展而引致的勞工短缺問題,令更多大學生在求學期 間已投身勞動力市場,然而兼職(非全日制)就業對學生構成了什麽心理成 本呢﹖很多研究已證明學校歸屬感的重要性,但是有關學校歸屬感與學生 兼職就業之關係的研究卻很缺乏。因此,為探索大學生兼職就業對學校歸 屬感的不利影響,本研究訪問了164名在澳門有兼職就業的本科生(40名男 性及124名女性),並發現他們當中有32%的學生每星期工作超過19小時。 層級回歸分析的結果證實即使控制了人口統計變量及其他個人特徵包括朋 輩關係、憂鬱症狀和各學科平均成績積點的因素的情況下,兼職就業仍是 學校歸屬感的顯著不利因素。本文亦討論本研究結果的涵義及促進學校歸 屬感之方法。
