A correlational study was conducted to investigate the relationship among vocational identity, negative career thoughts and quality of work life of internees. Sample comprised of 80 internees with age range 20-28 years (M = 23.10, SD = 1.74). It was hypothesized that negative career thoughts would be negatively whereas vocational identity would be positively related to quality of work life. It was also hypothesized that negative career thoughts and vocational identity would predict quality of work life. Career Thoughts Inventory (Sampson et al., 1996) was used to assess the negative career thoughts; Vocational Identity Scale (Holland, Daiger, & Power, 1980) was used to measure the vocational identity and Quality of Work-related Life Scale (Easton & Laar, 2012) was used to measure the quality of work life. Findings of the study showed that there was negative relationship of negative career thoughts with vocational identity and quality of work life whereas positive relationship was observed between vocational identity and quality of work life. Further negative career thoughts negatively predicted the quality of work life. Results were discussed in term of their implications and theoretical significance
