In the current situation, full offierce competitions and lack of employment opportunities, how can the college studentsmake the mature career choices?

The purpose ofthis study is to inspect the work values and CDMSE of the college students, and then toconstruct a model which is based on the individual's work values and CDMSE and canforecast the individual's career maturity.
