Erratum

After publication it was highlighted by the author that the tables had been misplaced in the article Sharma (2014), the correct order is presented below:

Table 1 should be placed below line the line that reads: “Based on the average annual income of their family, the students were divided into three different income categories.”

The text: “To test the above hypothesis we have used Chi-square test” should read: “To test the above hypothesis we have cross tabulated the data and used Chi-square test. Refer to table 2 & 3”. Table 2 should be placed below.

Table 3 should be placed below the line: “higher education significantly increases in comparison to low and middle income group students.”

Table 4 should be placed below the line: “in order to get a precise picture of the relationship between income category & students’ career intentions of starting a new business or seeking a job.”

Table 5 should be placed below the line: “The career choice preferences of students were bifurcated based on the above defined four categories.”

Table 6 should be placed below the line: “To test the above hypothesis, researcher has applied Chi-square test.”

Table 7 should be placed below line “in order to get a precise picture of relationship between students’ family size and their career intentions of starting a new business or seeking a job.”

The line: “The data was cross tabulated on the basis of students’ career choice preference and their father’s occupation. To test the above hypothesis we have applied Chi-square test”

Should read: “The data was cross tabulated on the basis of students’ career choice preference and their father’s occupation (Refer to table 8). To test the above hypothesis we have applied Chi-square test”

Table 8 should be placed below the line: “The data was cross tabulated on the basis of students’ career choice preference and their father’s occupation. To test the above hypothesis we have applied Chi-square test.”

Table 9 should be placed below the line: “while only 7.9% of the students whose father’s occupation status was ‘small business owners’ want to become entrepreneurs.”

Table 10 should be placed below the line: “in order to get a precise picture of relationship between fathers’ occupation and students’ career intentions.”

The line: “of 24 and 120 as given below:” should read: “of 24 and 120 as given below in Table 11”.

Table 11 should be placed below the line: “Accordingly, three categories were developed between the score of 24 and 120 as given below:”

Table 12 should be placed below the line: “In order to test this hypothesis we have applied Chi-square test.”

Table 13 should be placed below the line: “there is a corresponding increase in the entrepreneurial intentions of students and decrease in the ratio of job seeking preferences of students.”

Table 14 should be placed below the line: “to get a precise picture of relationship between students’ career intentions and their social capital network span.”

Furthermore, the first line of Conclusion & Limitations section which reads as 'The study confirmed that financial capital of the family (measured as father’s occupation)' should be read as ‘The study confirmed that financial capital of the family (measured as father’s annual income)’.

The seventh line of Conclusion & Limitations section which reads as '(measured as family size) of the family on the career intentions of students of students of' should be read as ‘(measured as family size) of the family on the career intentions of students of’.

The publishers would like to apologise for the errors included in the published paper.
