The development of career knowledge and career attitude in adolescence is significant to achieve a successful transition to adulthood. The aim of this study was to assess effects of family income and career guidance and counseling experience on changes in career maturity during the transition from high school to college. The study used data from Youth Panel 2007 collected by Korea Employment Information Service. The data included 456 adolescents who were high school students in the first and third waves of survey and college students in the fifth wave of survey. The results suggested that family income was a significant factor affecting the career maturity of adolescents. The experience of career guidance and counseling while in high school had a sustained and positive impact on the career maturity of adolescents even after entering college. Therefore, career education in the secondary educational system should expand continuously.
