A total of 335 Lower Six students from schools in Terengganu were selected using purposeful sampling method as the respondents in this study. This study was conducted using a survey method with three sets of questionnaires, namely Parenting Style Scale, Scale of Emotional Intelligence, and Scale Career Self Efficacy-Simplified version. The data were analyzed descriptively using mean and percentage alongside the inference analysis that was based on correlation and regression.
