The purpose of this study was to establish the decision making status of adolescents in Kisumu municipality across various demographic variables. The sample consisted of 359 (162 males and 197 females) secondary school students from year one to year four. The students were surveyed on a measure of career indecision. The findings of the study show that gender and the type of school a student attends has a significant influence on their career decision making status. Students in private schools are more undecided than those in public schools. Career indecision scores also decreases as one progresses from year one to year four. Based on the findings of the current study the researcher recommends that Career counsellors should attend to the challenges students face in relation to making career decisions so as to reduce their level of indecision. The current study may provide a Kenyan perspective of adolescence career decision making status which is currently lacking in literature. This information may then aid career researchers and counselors in implementing effective vocational intervention strategies that guide and assist the students in their career development.
