dc.description.abstract Various authors have argued that career resilience should be cultivated by individuals pursuing modern day careers as a critical career competency. No study has been reported thus far in the career management literature which offers a comprehensive measuring instrument for the construct. The focal point of this study was therefore the development of an instrument to operationalise the career resilience construct. Based on a review of the literature, the "Career Resilience Questionnaire" (CRQ) consisting of 60 items was developed and administered to respondents (N=352) in white-collar employment settings. A second-order factor analysis yielded four factors which seemed to be relatively independent. The factors were named "belief in oneself"/ "disregard for traditional sources of career success", "selfreliance" and "receptivity to change". The implications of the findings are discussed. en
