Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop an instrument, the Job Seeking Self-Efficacy Scale, to measure perceived self-efficacy in job-seeking activities. The construction of the instrument, which incorporated tasks that have been determined to be important in job seeking for individuals with disabilities, was based on Bandura's theory of selfefficacy. Items and subscales were empirically identified, and the reliability and validity of the subscales were examined. Recommendations for future research and applications to rehabilitation counseling practice and program evaluation are discussed.
