Rohany Nasir, Lee Shiang Lin

Abstract


Using the survey method, this study aims to look at the relationship between self-concept and career awareness amongst secondary school students. A total of 165 12-year old students from an international school were chosen as subjects for this study. Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale was administered as the research tool to measure the students' self-concept while their career awareness was tested using the Career Awareness Inventory. The data obtained were then analyzed using the Pearson correlation with significance level set at .05 to note the relationship between self-concept and career awareness. The end results revealed that there is a significant positive relationship between self-concept and career awareness among students. The study also showed that students with higher self-concept or those with a more positive outlook had higher levels of career awareness.
