Abstract: This dissertation consists of two essays. In Essay 1, a structural model was developed to test how parental job insecurity impacts youths¿ perception of future career self. Essay 2 examines the mediating effect of three types of career-specific parenting behaviors: lack of engagement, support, and interference on the relationship between paternal job insecurity and youths¿ career self-efficacy. Data were collected from undergraduate students and their parents. In Essay 1, results showed that parental job insecurity was positively associated with parental career support, which, in turn, influences youths¿ career self-efficacy. Moreover, career self-efficacy was positively related to the accessibility and importance of future career. In Essay 2, full sample analysis showed that paternal job insecurity was positively related to lack of engagement and negatively related to support. Moreover, the relationship between paternal job insecurity and career self-efficacy was mediated by lack of engagement for sons and by support for daughters.
