Recent research has advanced our understanding of the vocational orientation model applicable to Hong Kong. This study continues this line of research in validating a locally developed measure of vocational orientations in an university (n = 325) and an employee (n = 150) sample. The consequences of matching employees’ vocational orientations and job nature on job satisfaction and turnover intention are also examined. Results provided strong support for the reliability and validity of the locally developed measure and the applicability of the model suggested by recent research. Implications of vocational education, career guidance and future research in Hong Kong are discussed. Copyright © 2002 Hong Kong Educational Research Association.
