ABSTRACT

The current study aimed to examine the role of parental support and personality traits to career decision self-efficacy among first-year undergraduate students. Two hundred and sixty first-year undergraduate students in the Faculty of Education at Universitas Negeri Semarang have participated in this study. The results revealed that parental support, Extraversion, and Conscientiousness have emerged as the significant predictors of career decision self-efficacy, while Agreeableness, Neuroticism, and Openness may not be able to operate as predictors of career decision self-efficacy independently. Implications of parental support and personality traits measures to the prediction of career decision self-efficacy among first-year undergraduate students are discussed.
