Career self-efficacy and pay expectations for twelve jobs were investigated among African-American university students. It was hypothesized that male subjects would demonstrate higher self-efficacy and higher pay expectations. Twenty-three female and nineteen male subjects participated in the study. Results indicated that males had significantly higher self-efficacy, but pay expectations between males and females were not significantly different. This is inconsistent with what has been found in previous research using Caucasian samples in which males had both higher self-efficacy and higher pay expectations.
