This study used path analysis to examine the relationship between perceived barriers, acculturation, and role model influence on the career self-efficacy and career considerations of a sample of Hispanic women. Two path models were examined. The male-dominated model accounted for 15% of the variance, and the female-dominated model accounted for 26% of the variance. No relationship was found between the variables of interest and male-dominated career self-efficacy and consideration. However, perceived barriers were related to female-dominated career consideration and Anglo acculturation significantly contributed to female-dominated career self-efficacy. Results are discussed with regard to career practice and research with Hispanic women. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
