In the present study an attempt has been made to study the contributory role of self-esteem, academic achievement and vocational aspirations in determining the career attitude of senior secondary school students. A Sample of 1000 adolescents studying in senior secondary schools was selected through multistage sampling. For measuring the Career Attitude, an Adapted version of the Career Maturity Inventory by Gupta (1989) was used. Career Maturity Inventory provides two types of measures: The Attitude Scale and the Competence Test. So its Attitude Scale was used to measure the career attitude of senior secondary school students. Self-Esteem Inventory by Prasad and Thakur (1977) was used for measuring the self-esteem of senior secondary school students.
