Abstract

This study investigates the relationships between career decision-making constructs in terms of its three dimensions and the Big Five factors. Data were collected from a randomly selected sample of 230 high school students. Pearson's correlation coefficient was used to establish the relationship between the two sets of variables. Results indicate significant relationships between the Big Five factors and career decision-making constructs. Neuroticism was found to be negatively related with career decidedness; conscientiousness, extraversion, openness and agreeableness are positively and significantly correlated with career decidedness. Although the findings offer support of the usefulness of Big Five Model in career guidance, more studies of the general population are recommended to enable the model to be generalized.
