Abstract: Career self-efficacy is an important aspect of making choice, planning, and decision-related to career. Social Career Cognitive Theory (SCCT) is a career theory explaining the career self-efficacy aspect. SCCT has been expanded in the career aspect in 1994 which emphasis interest, career choice and performance aspect. Besides that, SCCT also emphasizes the importance of self-efficacy in career development externally and internally. This article elaborates on SCCT and the importance of SCCT in explaining the career self-efficacy (CSE) aspect. There are a few theories related to individual career aspects, namely Life Span Theory (Super, 1957), Holland’s Theory (Holland, 1959) and Social Cognitive Career Theory (SCCT). However, SCCT has been chosen as a theoretical base to explain the CSE based on the justifications addressed in this article.
