The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between perceived family and teacher support with students' career optimism and to determine whether career decision-making self-efficacy is the mediator of before-mentioned relationships. The study was conducted on 227 students of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb. The results show a positive relationship between informational family support and career optimism, while family expectations are in negative relationship with career optimism. Financial family support did not show significant correlation with career optimism. All four dimensions of teacher support (teacher investment, emotional teacher support, teacher expectations and teacher availability) are positively correlated with career optimism. Career decision-making self-efficacy completely mediates the relationship between informational family support, teacher investment, teacher expectations and teacher availability with career optimism, and partially mediates the relationship between emotional teacher support and career optimism.
