We investigated the effect of social support on employment anxiety among 217 art education college students in China and assessed the mediating role of self-efficacy in this relationship. The results showed that social support was significantly negatively correlated with employment anxiety. In addition, self-efficacy mediated the relationship between social support and employment anxiety. Our findings enhance understanding of the relationships between social support, employment anxiety, and self-efficacy among students in the context of higher education in China. The results also provide practical insights for educators to prevent students’ employment anxiety. Directions for future research are suggested.
