The purpose of this research is to test the hypotheses suggested by the earlier interview-study (Ogawa, 2003a, b) which delved into the voluntary turnover process of modern Japanese youth. The questionnaire survey was mail-administered with a sample drawn from those who visited the job placement office for 29 younger persons, and the samples were employees who visited the office in their teens or twenties in the past and were regular or contracted full-timers at the time of data collection. The major findings are as follows : (1) Reality shock reduced the reliance of the employees on their bosses, and made their organizational commitment decline, (2) but wasn't much related to job satisfaction, and (3) could be a chance of self-understanding, especially one's aptitude-understanding. Finally, several suggestions for future research are offered.
