Economic, social, and technological changes create new demands and opportunities for people's jobs. Entrepreneurship is one way to deal with these demands and take advantage of new opportunities. Career planning assists an individual in becoming aware of various career options, including entrepreneurial intent. Even if they have all of the necessary resources, not everyone wants to start a new business. Some people have specific entrepreneurial characteristics that motivate them to pursue a career investing in new businesses. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of individuals' entrepreneurial traits on their career planning. The survey technique was used to collect data from 305 randomly selected employees of food processing enterprises operating in Konya, in Turkey. Descriptive statistics, exploratory factor analysis, and linear regression techniques were used to analyze the data. The findings revealed that entrepreneurial traits influence individuals' career planning. This result suggests that both individuals' entrepreneurial traits should be enhanced, and they should be encouraged to pursue a career in starting a new business.
