This study was performed with the aim of examining the relationship between skills in human relations and career searching behavior among college sports players, and the conclusions obtained through the research process are as follows. The population examined in this study consists of college sport players registered with the Korea Sport and Olympic Committee. Sampling was conducted with a random sampling method in non-probability sampling methods. The survey was conducted in the form of a questionnaire, and respondents were asked to choose the answers by themselves. A total of 290 data were used for the final analysis, excluding questionnaires that did not meet the purpose of the study. The results of it are as follows. To college sports players, interpersonal manner has positive effects on external activities and self-search, while affinity has a positive effect on information collection. Specifically, interpersonal manner and leadership have positive effects on external activities. Meanwhile, interpersonal manner and affinity have positive effects on self-search and information collection. In conclusion, the results show that skills in human relations partially affect career searching behavior. In this study, leadership can be described as internal leadership, which allows one to set goals for oneself and exert influence on oneself as well as make oneself work and improve one’s performance. As leadership affects the external activities of college sports players, we can understand that autonomous leadership like self-control is necessary.

Key words: Interpersonal manner, Affinity, Leadership, Sensitivity, Career-Searching Behavior, Athlete.
