Abstract:
Self efficacy is a person's belief in their ability to accomplish some specific goal or task.103 students participated in this research. The aim of this study was to find out the self efficacy and area of interest in BMM, BMS and BCA students. The objectives of this research was to help students identify their strengths and develop self awareness and to determine if self efficacy matches with BMM, BMS and BCA students area of interest. Random sampling technique was used to choose the samples. The tools used for research were: Generalized Self Efficacy Scale developed by Schwarzer & Jerusalem (1995) and The RIASEC Markers Scales developed by Liao, Armstrong and Rounds (2008). T test and percentages were calculated to analyze the data. Generalized Self Efficacy Scale was administered during the first session and the last session to study the before and after affect of the activities taken to develop self awareness, self efficacy, optimistic self belief, developing work skills and career awareness during the six months period. Weekly three two hours activity based sessions were taken with the students. It can be concluded that the intervention for self efficacy was effective for BMM and BMS students and the intervention for self efficacy was not effective for BCA students. The RIASEC Markers Scales was used to help individuals identify their best career match. It can also be concluded that self efficacy matches with the student's area of interest
