Work readiness can facilitate other attributes that will be related to work later such as performance and job satisfaction, career paths, to reduce anxiety at work. The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between career self-efficacy and student work readiness.

Sampling technique using simple random sampling, Data collection uses 2 scales, namely the Work Readiness Scale (WRS) and Career Decision Making Self-Efficacy- Short Form (CDMSE-SF) scale to prove the research hypothesis. The results of this study indicate that there is a positive and significant relationship between career self-efficacy and work readiness in undergraduate students. From these results, it can be said that the higher the career self-efficacy, the higher the student’s work readiness, and conversely the lower the career self-efficacy, the lower the student’s work readiness.
