BARROS, Alexandra. Career and Employability Beliefs Inventory. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.1, pp. 78-86. ISSN 1677-0471.

The present study reports the development of the Career and Employability Beliefs Inventory (Inventário de Crenças de Carreira e Empregabilidade - ICEB), which aims to evaluate beliefs that may correspond to the adaptive behaviors and attitudes of individuals facing career transitions. The ICEB has 38 items and 6 scales: Striving/Achievement, Proactivity/Initiative, Flexibility/Openness to change, Acceptance of challenges/Risks, Optimism, and Autonomy. We present the construction phases and report data regarding the psychometric characteristics of the instrument, studied with a sample of 395 students, 206 male and 189 female, with a mean age of 21.21 years. The internal consistency and validity indicators were satisfactory, presenting the ICEB as a promising instrument that supports the planning of vocational interventions aimed at facilitating career transitions.
