: The purpose of this research are to verify and to analyze: 1) the influence of industrial practical work experience for job readiness of students of SMK NEGERI 1 Surakarta year 2012/2013, 2) The influence of locus of control for job readiness of students of SMK Negeri 1 Surakarta year 2012/2013, and 3) The influence of industrial practical work experience and locus of control for job readiness of students of SMK Negeri 1 Surakarta year 2012/2013. This research is descriptive quantitative research with hypothesis testing. This research is located in SMK Negeri 1 Surakarta. The populations of this research were students of XII classes which are 299 students. The samplestaken were 80 students using proportional random sampling technique. The data collection techniques were questionnaire and documentation method. The validations of data were using validity and reliability testing. The data analysis techniques used to test the hypothesis were correlation and multiple regression analysis. The result of this research indicate that the first and second hypothesis test yield Ho was rejected and Ha was accepted because the value of rcalculation for X1 =0.538 and X2 = 0.270 is larger than rtable = 0,220.whereas, the third hypothesis test was using regression analysis with two predictor obtain the value of correlation coefficient R2 equal to 0.31 or 31% with regression equation Ŷ = 13,094 + 0,572X1 + 0,459X2. For the value of f calculation = 17,364 > ftable = 3.44 at the 5% of significant level. The amount of the relative contribution and effective contribution to X1 toward Y equal to 86,88% and 27%, while X2 toward Y equal to 13,12% and 4,06%. The conclusions of this research are: 1) there is a significant effect of industrial practical work experience for job readiness of students of SMK NEGERI 1 Surakarta year 2012/2013, 2) there is a significant effect of locus of control for job readiness of students of SMK NEGERI 1 Surakarta year 2012/2013, and 3) there is a significant effect of industrial practical work experience and locus of control for job readiness of students of SMK Negeri 1 Surakarta year 2012/2013.
