The purpose of this study was to develop a career resilience scale for university students. The data of 114 university students was collected. Career resilience, career decision making anxiety, and the degree of career development were measured. The result of a confirmatory factor analysis indicated a five-factor structure of career resilience with a high Cronbach’s alpha: ability to cope with problems and changes; social skills; interest in novelty; optimism about the future; and willingness to help others. The results of correlation analyses showed all 5 aspects of career resilience promoted career development. The results also indicated that “ability to cope with problems and change”, “social skills” and “optimism about the future” decreased the degree of career decision making anxiety. The results of analyses of variance suggested that “social skills” decreased the negative effect of "career decision making anxiety" on career development. The results also suggested that “interest in novelty” and “willingness to help others” promoted students’ career development especially when they feel anxiety about career decision making. These results indicated the reliability and validity of this career resilience scale.
