The overrepresentation of Asian Americans in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) occupations can render invisible the early experiences of Asian Americans in other fields. In this study, we provide a national and longitudinal portrait of the occupational expectations of Asian Americans (n = 2,340) in high school and their postsecondary years. Multinomial logistic regression models confirm Asian Americans hold high occupational expectations in STEM fields overall. However, longitudinal results also reveal high occupational expectations in arts and sports in Grade 9 that decrease and occupational expectations in business and management that begin low but increase after high school. These longitudinal trends are similar for other students but reveal career trajectories of Asian Americans that receive less attention among researchers. Results show little evidence of misalignment between Asian American occupational expectations and academic subject interests in high school. Gaps in occupational expectations between students categorized as English Learner (EL) and those who are not (non-EL) are also mostly attenuated when accounting for individual and parent backgrounds. The study has implications for supporting Asian American youth interested in non-STEM fields, complicating a characterization of Asian Americans as model minorities uniformly predisposed for STEM fields, and improving Asian American career visibility beyond STEM.

Objective: Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) on average report higher rates of racial discrimination and lower levels of English proficiency than other racial and ethnic groups. Less clear is how these factors may shape AAPIs' civic outcomes. The current study explored the roles of racial discrimination and English proficiency in AAPIs' civic satisfaction and civic engagement. Method: Using data from a quality-of-life survey of 2,463 AAPIs from five ethnic subgroups in a large southwestern city, we analyzed (a) whether racial discrimination was associated with lower civic satisfaction but higher civic engagement and (b) whether English proficiency is associated with higher civic satisfaction and civic engagement. Results: Multivariate regression results indicated that racial discrimination was associated with lower levels of civic satisfaction for four AAPI groups (Asian Indian, Korean, Filipino, and Vietnamese) but not with higher civic engagement. English proficiency was not consistently associated with civic satisfaction or engagement across AAPI groups. Conclusions: Examining racial discrimination along civic outcomes brings attention to an important dimension of AAPIs' well-being and lived experiences. Although English proficiency was not associated with civic engagement, the findings on racial discrimination have implications for civic programs, services, and policies that are important for promoting a more inclusive democracy.
