Career (or,yob) satisfaction is recognized as an indicator of employee turnover. It is also well known that certain internal anchors play a role in predicting the career satisfaction of information system (IS) professionals. Researchers have speculated on the influence of external opportunities on career satisfaction, but none have empirically tested the premise that both internal and external anchors better predict the career satisfaction of IS professionals in the entry-level stage. A sample of IS professionals supports the use of both anchors in improving career satisfaction, and, hopefully, employee turnover. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
