Increasing Self-Efficacy through Career Assessments and Career Counseling
MetadataShow full item record
Because self-efficacy plays an important role in career development as well as academic behavior, a study was conducted to examine whether career counseling would be more effective in increasing self-efficacy when used with career assessments such as MyersBriggs Task Inventory (MBTI) or Strong Interest Inventory (SII). The study used 70 male and 80 female undergraduate students, who were placed into one of the three different groups. The first group (control group) received career counseling without any career assessments. The second group (MBTI group) received the same career counseling, but with Myers-Briggs Task Inventory and the third group (SII group) received the same career counseling with Strong Interest Inventory. All participants were asked to complete Career Decision-Making Self-Efficacy (CDMSE) scale before and after the study to measure the changes in self-efficacy. It was hypothesized that all three groups will result in increase in self-efficacy, but SII group and MBTI group will increase greater in selfefficacy compared to the control group.
