In this study, it was aimed to investigate the predictive role of career stress levels of the students of the vocational high school of justice on their psychological well-being levels. At the same time, in this study, it was investigated whether the students' career stress and psychological well-being scores differ significantly according to their gender, their unwillingness to choose the department they read and their level of hope for finding a job. The study group of the research consists of 224 university students, including 148 women and 76 men in the Vocational School of Justice in a province in the Aegean Region. Career Stress Scale and Psychological Well-Being Scale were used as data collection tools. In the study, the career stress levels of students who unwillingly chose the department they read were found to be higher than those who voluntarily chose and psychological well-being levels were lower. In addition, it was found that students with high hope for finding a job after graduation had lower career stresses and also higher levels of psychological well-being than those who had little hope for finding a job. Finally, it was concluded in the research that career stress significantly predicted psychological well-being in a negative way.
