We used approach/avoidance theory and self-verification theory to investigate the influence mechanism of core self-evaluation of post-1995 generation graduates on their career growth through career concern and career curiosity, and then analyzed the moderating effect of social support in this relationship. We collected data from 526 senior college students at six universities over three time periods, which lasted 18 months. Results show there was a positive relationship between core self-evaluation and career growth. Moreover, this relationship was partially mediated by both career concern and career curiosity, and partially moderated by social support. These results can help graduates to manage and achieve career growth, and can help career counselors to design more effective training for students in career management.
