EFFECTIVENESS OF JOB READINESS COURSE ON CAREER SELF-EFFICACY BETWEEN TWO GROUPS OF UNDERGRADUATES
Career readiness is an important element for undergraduates to undergo a transitional period from education to the world of work, which involves the processes of career planning, goal selection, and decision making. Thus, this research was aimed to study the effectiveness of a job readiness course on career self-efficacy among undergraduates who have enrolled in the LMCR 3422 Job Readiness Course. This was quasi-experimental research that studied the difference in career self-efficacy before and after joining this course for two different groups. LMCR 3422 Job Readiness Couse was conducted throughout 14 weeks and encompassed a variety of career activities, including mock interview, industrial sharing, and resume clinic with the aims of assisting students to gain occupational information and skills, apply the learned skills into practices and build career profile. The new element, such as career counseling and guidance, had been included in the second group. The result showed that there was a significant difference in terms of career self-efficacy before and after joining the job readiness course. The result also indicated that the second group showed better differences than the first group. The recommendation and implications of this study had been discussed.
