Content: Purpose:  This study examined the influence of career self-efficacy, career guidance activities/ support and psychological capital on student satisfaction and behaviour (withdrawal).
Methodology:  Cross-sectional survey data was collected using a paper (Time 1) and online survey (Time 2) from 189 psychology students enrolled on an undergraduate psychology programme in the UK.
Results: Self-efficacy and resilience, both indices related to psychological capital, increased significantly over time (as measured at the start and the end of the academic year, Time 1 and 2). However, career self-efficacy did not increase over time. The relationship between career self-efficacy and satisfaction with the programme was mediated by the perceived helpfulness of career information presented to students over the course of the year (all measures from Time 2). Withdrawal from the programme (at Time 2) was predicted by helpfulness of activities, career information provided, and student’s career self-efficacy (at Time 1). Having at least two or more meetings with guidance counsellors over the course of one year increased course as well as programme satisfaction (Time 2).
Limitations: Lack of knowledge about career trajectories among students in psychology may have influenced the results.
Implications: Evaluating career information activities is key as their perceived helpfulness predict satisfaction, while exercises aimed at increasing psychological capital (e.g., resilience and self-efficacy) may further contribute to later student satisfaction.
Originality: The research explores a number of issues not captured in previous research, specifically the role of psychological capital as well as perceived helpfulness of career information.
