Abstract: 
This study examined the level of career
maturity of 324 secondary school students
and the impact of career guidance and
parental involvement on the career development
of these students. The results showed
that students who had been exposed to some
form of career guidance in school scored
higher on the Career Attitude Scale. Those
who had received home support in the form
of parental involvement in career planning
and availability of career role models also
showed a higher level of career maturity
in terms of career planfulness and work
orientation. Although career attitude was
found to mature with age, there was no
significant sex differences in the career
development of these students. Such findings
highlighted the importance of career
guidance in school and home support in enhancing
the career maturity of our students.
