The purpose of current study was to examine the role of adult sibling relationship quality (i.e., warmth, conflict and rivalry) in predicting career decision self-efficacy of university students after controlling for gender, age, birth order, sibling size, contact frequency, and physical distance between siblings. Participants were state university students whose ages between 18 and 25 in Ankara. Convenience sampling method was used, and the sample composed of 414 participants (257 female, 257 male). Adult Sibling Relationship Questionnaire (ASRQ) and Career Decision Self-Efficacy-Short Form (CDSE-SF) were used to collect data. The ASRQ was adapted into Turkish by the researcher. The results of multiple hierarchical regression analysis indicated that demographic and relationship characteristics did not significantly predict career decision self-efficacy. Among sibling relationship quality variables, warmth was the only significant predictor and uniquely explained almost 7% of the variation in career decision self- efficacy of college students.
