This research study examines the factors influencing the willingness of graduates to join government armed forces, focusing on the relationship between career adaptability, perceived employability, and the inclination to join the armed forces. In a world where demand for highly skilled personnel in armed forces is growing, this study addresses the critical issue of graduate employment and career choices. The study collected data from 191 respondents, gathering information about their demographics, academic achievements, and proximity to security forces. Through Pearson correlation analysis, the research explored the connections between career adaptability, perceived employability, and the willingness to enlist in the government armed forces. Findings reveal that there is a positive and significant relationship between career adaptability and perceived employability (r = .492 p < .05), indicating that individuals with higher career adaptability perceive themselves as more employable. Additionally, the study identifies a positive and significant relationship between career adaptability and willingness to join government armed forces (r = .411, p < .05), as well as a positive and significant relationship between perceived employability and willingness to join (r = 0.405**, p < 0.05). These results suggest that graduates with greater career adaptability and higher perceived employability are more inclined to consider joining the armed forces.
