The purpose of this study was to examine what career development variables, according to the Social Cognitive Career Theory, contribute to career decision-making self-efficacy, one of the key components of career development in a sample of Asian American undergraduate college students. The career literature is historically limited in empirical studies related to Asian American career development. A regression analysis was conducted on a sample of 98 Asian American college students from a large southern urban university using the independent variables: perceived career barriers, perceived education barriers, coping with career barriers self-efficacy, coping with educational barriers self-efficacy, acculturation, and global social support to predict the dependent variable career decision-making self-efficacy. All independent variables, with the exception of acculturation, were found to be significantly correlated in expected directions with the dependent variable. A significant regression model emerged in which 36% of the variance of the dependent variable aligned with the variance of the independent variables (Adjusted R[superscript 2] = 0.36, F[subscript 6,91] = 10.108, p less than 0.0001). Implications of the findings for clinical considerations and future research on Asian American career development are discussed.
