Self-efficacy of career decision is a popular research area of career psychology in recent years. Oversees' researches on Self-efficacy of career decision have been quite vigorous, while domestic studies of this area appear comparatively fewer. Researches with an intervention seem even fewer.This thesis, integrating the fruits of oversees' and domestic studies, designed a set of group activity plans focusing on the promotion of Self-efficacy of career decision of college students. 38 students have been selected, randomly divided into the experimental group and control group. The design of ante-post, experimental-control group has been conducted. Subjects of the experimental group received 8 2-hour consistent group interventions, once a week; while control group received no intervention. The result of the intervention has been assessed, both qualitatively and quantitatively, through measurement, process study, and the feedbacks of the group members. The result showed that the experimental group's total scores, as well as the scores of the 5 dimensions—self-evaluation, information collection, planning, and problem solution—of the Self-efficacy of career decision test have been extremely elevated (p<0.000). The members of the experimental group rated comparatively higher in the effectiveness and acceptability of the group activities. Process study also indicated that the accomplishment of the activity goals was satisfactory. All those discussed above confirmed the viability of the group activity intervention design to promote Self-efficacy of career decision of college students.Moreover, this thesis also discussed the factors which has influenced the eif ectiveness of this group activity, concluding the following means for the promotion of Self-efficacy of career decision of college students: to encourage students to learn from the past successful experiences, to establish models for them, to guide them to keep their moods stable and healthy, to offer straight encouragement, to train them using positive ways of attribution, to provide necessary information and skills for job-hunting, and to conduct rehearsals of the process of job-hunting.
