The study examined whether senior high school students’ career adaptability dimensions were predicted by (1) their aspirations for the future (the importance they attribute to a good future, their perceived likelihood of attaining a good future) and by (2) their present state of well-being (psychological well-being , positive thinking). This investigation was based on cross-sectional data from 401 public senior high school students. Results of hierarchical multiple regression revealed that (1) it is only the likelihood of attainment of aspirations, and not its perceived importance, that activates career adaptability dimensions and (2) psychological well-being and positive thinking prompt career concern, control, and confidence, and not curiosity dimension. This study provided a two-pronged view of what makes adolescents, at the lower socioeconomic status, exercise career adaptability even as they have not started a career yet: their projected future-state, on one hand, and their current state of well-being on the other hand.
