TEIXEIRA, Maria Odília  and  COSTA, Cátia João. Career and subjective well-being in higher education: personal and situational determinants. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.1, pp. 19-29. ISSN 1679-3390.

In the 2006 Lent and Brown Well-being model, the relationship between subjective well-being and career is analyzed, considering personal, educational and contextual variables. The participants were 255 students of Psychology (52%) and Health (48%) (average age 20.40, 86% women) who responded to the Career Satisfaction, General Self-Efficacy, Development and Well-Being, Parental Responsibility and Demanding, Big Five-10 and Adaptation to Higher Education Scales. The results of the linear multiple regression show as predictors of well-being: career satisfaction, perception of the personal factors of course adjustment, self-efficacy, perception of maternal responsibility, extroversion and kindness. This research identifies contributory dimensions of student well-being, which are significant in intervention, and clarifies the meaning of the career in the field of Positive Psychology.

Keywords : positive psychology; self-efficacy; personality; parental styles; course adjustment.
