The authors explored the effects of a structured-group career intervention among 280 Italian high school students. Hierarchical linear models indicated the intervention's effectiveness in increasing career decision-making self-efficacy and, consequently, career exploration, but not in decreasing career choice anxiety. In addition, partial confirmation was found for the moderating effects of participants' expectations and motivation to change on the relationship between career decision-making self-efficacy and career choice anxiety. The findings support the development of a systematic vocational guidance program in Italian schools.

Abstract

The authors explored the effects of a structured-group career intervention among 280 Italian high school students. Hierarchical linear models indicated the intervention's effectiveness in increasing career decision-making self-efficacy and, consequently, career exploration, but not in decreasing career choice anxiety. In addition, partial confirmation was found for the moderating effects of participants' expectations and motivation to change on the relationship between career decision-making self-efficacy and career choice anxiety. The findings support the development of a systematic vocational guidance program in Italian schools.
