This study examines the effects of perceived career barriers on career decidedness among first‐generation college and non‐FGC students. Participants responded online to measures of perceived career barriers and career decidedness. Results indicated that first-genstudents scored higher on lack of support and lack of time and financial resources than non‐FGC students. Further research is needed to investigate the differential effects of various domains of career barriers. Career counselors are advised to consider FGC students' perceived career barriers in guiding students' career exploration and decision‐making.
