The subjects of this study were 180 elementary school students from multi-cultural families and general families. The purpose of this study was to examine the differences in self-concept and career development within two groups and the correlations between self-concept and career development. Also, it was to investigate the self-concept's effects on career development. The results were as follows: First, the children from general families showed higher academic-occupational exploration than those in multi-cultural families. Second, the self-concept had significant correlations with career development in both groups. And there were stronger correlations in children from multi-cultural families. Third, the regression analyses of two groups showed that academic self-concept had significant effects on career development in both groups, but there were higher effects in children from multi-cultural families.
