The aim of this study is to investigate the factors that influencing the career choice of the students. This study is focus on undergraduate students in University of Aden. Undergraduate students were chosen because right upon graduation, they were the one who will be dealing with the decision on career choice. A total number of 321 students responded to the questionnaire. Statistical Package software for Social Science (SPSS) version 22.0 and Smart PLS version 2 were used to analyse the collected data. Using Smart PLS measurement model was examined to test the reliability and validity of the study instruments. In addition, structural model was used to test research hypotheses. The findings of the study largely supported the hypothesized relationships proposed in the theoretical model and showed that the family, self-efficacy and economic considerations exerted significant influence on the choice of a career.
