The aim of this study was to examine whether adolescents' career exploration is predicted by perceived social support. Participants were 718 seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth grade students. In this research, simultaneous regression analysis assessed the contributions of perceived social support to the adolescent's career exploration. Perceived family social support, perceived friends' social support, and perceived significant other social support correlated significantly with the career exploration. The simultaneous regression analysis showed that perceived family social support, perceived friends' social support, and perceived significant other social support were a significant predictor of career exploration.
