The present research examined the influence of self-regulated decision making on satisfaction in career path (college major for Study 1, job for Study 2) and major-related career choice. Results indicate a full mediating effect of fit in the relationship between self-regulated decision making and satisfaction in career path. Self-regulated decision making also influenced major-job congruence via satisfaction with a participant's college major. Findings suggest that individuals who possess self-regulatory ability in decision-making contexts were more likely to choose majors and jobs of good fit, experience satisfaction from their career decisions, and choose careers relevant to their college majors.
