This study aims to examine the relationship between self-esteem, job-search intensity and career decision making among final year students. The probabilities used to test whether there are any influences exist in three aspects; namely, self-esteem over career decision making self-efficacy, ob-search intensity over career decision making self-efficacy, and self-esteem over job-search intensity. The instruments used were a demographic information sheet (purposely designed for this study), the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, Job Search Intensity Scale, and Career Decision making Self-Efficacy Scale-Short Form. Participants were recruited using a cluster sampling procedure. The data were collected from a self-reported questionnaire administered to 728 final year students of a public university in Malaysia. The statistical tests used to analyze the data were Structural Equation Modelling using AMOS 16. Findings showed that there were significant relationships between self-esteem and career decision making self-efficacy, and a significant relationship between job-search intensity and career decision making self-efficacy. The implications for students' developments and career development centre are also discussed.
