BUSCACIO, Reivani Chisté Zanotelli  e  SOARES, Adriana Benevides. University students and their expectations about career development. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.1, pp. 69-79. ISSN 1984-7270.

This study aimed to identify, from the students' discourse, the expectations related to the professional preference and recognize the social influences underlying these preferences. Five students of sexes, different ages and periods of public and private universities of the state of Rio de Janeiro were interviewed. With that purpose, a qualitative methodology was used with a semi-structured interview script specially designed for this study. It is possible to conclude that some of the university students showed to have clear, unrealistic expectations as to the career that they chose to follow, not being influenced by a still conservative social discourse. Moreover, most of them recognize their own characteristics, needs and desires, a category termed here as self-knowledge.

Palavras-chave : expectations; university students; professional choice; career; qualitative study.
