The purpose of this study was to examine the nature of the relationship between goal orientation, self-regulation, and career decision self-efficacy. Participants in this study included 263 undergraduate and graduate students at a large northeastern university. Participants completed an online survey. Results indicated that there was a significant relationship between goal orientation and self-regulation. Furthermore, regression analyses revealed significant findings when assessing self-regulation on career decision self-efficacy after controlling for goal orientation. Implications of the major findings and direction for future research are discussed.
