Abstract

Using a pre-post and control group design, we examined the effect of a career education module on career development among a group of 122 community college students in Malaysia. The effect of gender and the interaction effect of gender and career education module on career development were also investigated. MANOVA analyses showed significant differences between the experimental and control groups in terms of career planning, self-efficacy, and career maturity. However, no significant interaction was observed between strategies and gender on the three career development constructs. Our findings are consistent with most career education studies that used secondary school samples.
