Examined the role that sources of career information (e.g., professors, family) play in shaping college students' salary expectations. Results suggest differences in entry level salary expectations were associated with gender and gender-linkage of college major; women gathered more information from female sources than did men; and career information was not predictive of either entry or peak salary expectations.
