Believing that one can be successful in postsecondary education endeavors and have a meaningful  career  are  important  goals  for  all  students,  and  school  counselors  are  well positioned to enhance these beliefs. Evidence of construct validity and reliability and  recommendations  for  using  the  Career  and  College  Readiness  Self-Efficacy Inventory  (CCRSI)  is  presented.  The  CCRSI  appears  to  have potential  for  core curriculum and  individual  student planning  interventions  delivered  by  professional school counselors to enhance these self-efficacy beliefs.
