Abstract

The present research paper designed to examine the Career Maturity (CM) level of Intermediate students and made a comparative analysis regarding their gender, subject, and type of college. This research was delimited to the 11th grade students of public and private colleges of district Khanewal. A sample consisting of 600 students was selected through stratified random sampling. Career Maturity Inventory-Revised (CMI-R) was used to gather the data. Descriptive (percentages) and inferential (T-test) statistics were applied for the analysis of the data. Results indicated that higher number of students have a low level of CM. The difference in the CM level was not significant among female and male students. However, significant difference between the CM level of science and arts students and private and public college students were found. Students of the science group and students at private colleges had a higher level of career maturity than arts and public college students. Educators and career counselors may find these findings useful for improving undergraduate’s CM level and facilitating their transition from college to the workplace. Findings from this research imply the need of professional career counselors at school and college levels who can help students in deciding their subjects and career
