  Abbreviated self-efficacy form of Personal Globe Inventory is a shorter measure that is based on the most comprehensive model of career self-efficacy, and can be very useful for use in research and interventions of career counseling.

Alpha coefficients showed good internal consistency of 0.8 in its subscales and test-retest coefficients showed good reliability in all its subscales (min=0.71, max=0.87).

Randomization test supported the structural validity for this measure (CI>0.55,sig=0.02 for Holland’s Model and CI>0.50,sig
