Abstract

The extent to which Basic Confidence Scales predicted career decision‐making self‐efficacy was studied in a sample of 627 undergraduate students. Six confidence variables accounted for 49% of the variance in career decision‐making self‐efficacy. Leadership confidence was the most important, but confidence in science, mathematics, writing, using technology, and cultural sensitivity all contributed significant incremental variance. There were some differences as a function of race and gender, but leadership confidence was the most significant predictor in all subgroups. Implications for educational and career counseling are discussed.
