Young adulthood is a unique developmental period when the foundations for long-term career trajectories are established. Depressive symptoms during adolescence may negatively impact career exploration activities and long-term outcomes. Data from Waves I and VI of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health will be used to explore the impact of depressive symptoms in adolescence on employment status in young adulthood, including quality indicators (e.g. benefits, level of autonomy), satisfaction, and career-relevance of that employment.
