Abstract

The current study addresses the need for further research about the relationship between anxiety and racial-salience and their individual effects on career indecision and career decision- making self-efficacy. Through the use of an online survey including a series of measures, the researcher hypothesizes that members of ethnic minority groups will experience greater levels of racial salience than will white participants, that racial and ethnic minorities will experience increased anxiety, that members of racial and ethnic minority groups will report higher career indecision and lower career self-efficacy than will their white counterparts in the study, and that anxiety and racial salience levels with have impacts on career indecision and career decision- making self-efficacy. Through the current study, the researcher aims to develop data that can be used by the University of Richmond’s Career Development Center and by the Counseling and Psychological Services department to better aid officials in helping all types of students with their career issues.
