In addition, the result of a path analysis using AMOS indicated that their major satisfaction level is found to have a direct and indirect effect on career decision level and indirect effect on career preparation behavior, while career decision-making self-efficacy is directly effective against career decision level and career preparation action and major satisfaction exerted an impact on career decision level and career preparation behavior by the medium of career decision-making self-efficacy.
