Career adaptability refers to the ability to adapt to changing tasks and engage in continued self-learning. It is important to respond to the changing demands of employers. Undergraduates are the future talents of a country. Their readiness to join the dynamic labour market is important to be examined. Thus, this study examines the factor affecting career adaptability among undergraduates in Malaysia. An online questionnaire was disseminated to undergraduates using Microsoft Forms. The questionnaire consists of questions on career adaptability, career decision-making self-efficacy, proactive personality, and academic performance. After filtering the responses received, the regression analysis includes 171 responses from undergraduates. Results show that career decision-making self-efficacy, proactive personality, and academic performance are positively related to career adaptability. This study found career decision-making self-efficacy and proactive personality have significant influences on career adaptability. Universities are recommended to encourage undergraduates to participate in extracurricular activities to have the opportunities to enhance their decision-making skills and develop their ability to take initiative.
