The availability of quality information is critical to making informed career decisions. Presently, there is a void of information regarding the level of job demands that impact work-nonwork balance and conflict in various occupations. This study examined the relationship between work-nonwork conflict (WNC) and work-nonwork balance (WNB) and various occupational factors and personal factors among chefs and head cooks and found that occupational demands generally had stronger relationships to outcomes of WNC and WNB than personal factors. The findings outlined from this research suggest that occupational demand information, as it relates to work-nonwork dynamics, is largely generalizable to most individuals regardless of their personal factors. This implies that framing occupational demands relative to WNC and WNB likelihoods and providing that information publicly through an information source such as O*NET could be effective in aiding career-related decisions for prospective job incumbents.
