This study investigates the career intentions of prospective English teachers in relation with context (university and social environment) and alternative career choices. The participants were 223 senior year pre-service teachers from four universities located in Marmara Region in Turkey. They answered a questionnaire including items about career intentions and an open-ended question about alternative careers. Data were analyzed through descriptive and interpretive statistics. A significant relationship is found between career intentions, alternative career choices for career changers and university variable. In addition, the social environment and the university characteristics are related to the stated alternative careers.
