  Abstract:  The paper presents the results of an explorative study which intended to assess the pattern of development of high-school students’ career attitudes, comparing their evolution by grade level and by some other relevant career choice correlates, as gender, work experience, school achievement and grade specialisation. Through investigating the assumptions of the developmental model of career choice in a Romanian sample we wanted to identify some particularities generated by the specific of the Romanian educational system, and to establish baseline data prior to implementation of a comprehensive career education program. Our study confirmed some of the relationships we expected (with work experience and school achievement level), but found different results for some career choice variables (gender and grade specialisation). The expected evolving pattern by grade level was not confirmed, but a suddenly increase in career attitudes scores was found in 12th grade students, which significantly differed from the younger students. Some relevant suggestions concerning the elaboration of career education programs are discussed.
