Purpose: This study aims to understand the structural relationship between values and major satisfaction, career decision self-efficacy, and job preparation behavior recognized by college students majoring in aviation service. In a positive effect on the active job preparation behavior of college students majoring in aviation service, the exact job value of their choice is vital for major satisfaction and career decision self-efficacy. Method: The population of this study conducted an online survey from April 11 to April 24, 2020, for students in the 2nd to 4th grades of airline service-related departments. Of the 412 collected questionnaires, 398 valid questions were used for analysis after excluding those that responded faithfully. Data were analyzed using SPSS 21.0 and AMOS 21.0 statistical packages based on the data collected to verify the hypothesis of this study. Results: As a result of hypothesis verification, it was confirmed that the perceived work values of college stu-dents majoring in airline service have a significantly positive(+) influence on major satisfaction, career decision-making self-efficacy, and employment preparation behavior. However, it was shown that major satisfaction did not have a significantly positive(+) influence on employment preparation behavior. However, it was confirmed that major satisfaction and career decision-making self-efficacy had a double mediating effect between job value and job preparation behavior. Conclusion: In this study, there was no significant positive influence on employment preparation behavior for major satisfaction of college students majoring in airline service. This means that even if the overall satisfaction with the major recognized by college students majoring in airline service is high, it does not affect the full-fledged employment preparation behavior. However, in this study, as it was confirmed that major satisfaction and career decision-making self-efficacy had a double mediating effect between work values and employment preparation behavior, it was confirmed that students' psychological and internal positive factors play an important role in employment preparation behavior.
