CALHA, Antônio. Reflections of organizational logic in professional identity: variations of the autobiographical discourse. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.1, pp. 7-18. ISSN 1679-3390.

The objective of this article is to analyze how the professional identity embodies the principles of the organizational management logic that frame the professional career of individuals. The analysis focuses on the identity references mobilized in the autobiographical narrative production and that structure professional identity. For this purpose, the results obtained from the analysis of a documentary corpus of 100 autobiographies are presented. The results revealed that the different configuration of the professional trajectories, structured around a greater or lesser attachment to the strict functional content, also corresponds to an assignment of meanings that are also different from the idea of professional experience, with implications for the professional identity and the way these individuals present themselves in the narrative.

Keywords : self; professional identity; autobiography; work; discourse.
