Defined as the situation individuals undergo in the face of stress, burnout syndrome appears to be a handicap not only conveying the feeling of isolation towards a specific job or profession but diminishing the productivity of individual in profession-related settings as well. This study sets out to develop and design an attitude scale in order to explore the differentiation of burnout of individuals in terms of job and profession concepts. In order to measure professional and job burnout, a trial scale was formed covering 106 statements obtained from 80 students with a job or profession at an MBA program and this scale was administered. Reliability and validity analyses of the Data obtained were performed and as the results of the analyses performed a 14-item professional burnout scale and a 12-item job burnout scale were developed.
