Several researchers have hypothesized relationships between vocational congruence and career success. In view of this fact, a study examined the relationships between the vocational congruence, academic success, and career maturity of 401 undergraduates (251 females and 150 males) attending a large state university. The respondents, who participated in the study as part of an introductory psychology course requirement, represented a variety of academic majors and had an average age of 19.86 years. Participants completed a short demographic questionnaire and the following tests: Vocational Preference Inventory, Career Maturity Inventory-Attitude Scale, and Career Decision Making Scale. The females exhibited a higher level of vocational congruence than the males. Although the anticipated relationship between congruence and career decision-making attitudes was found for both females and males, there was no statistically significant association between congruence and academic success as measured by grade-point average (GPA) for males or females. The lack of a relationship between career decision-making skills and GPA was said to confirm the need for college-level career development programs to include specific methods and techniques designed to enhance students' career decision-making skills and academic performance.
