ALMEIDA, Bruno Rocha  and  TEIXEIRA, Maria Odília. Well-being and career adaptability in adaptation to college. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.1, pp. 19-30. ISSN 1984-7270.

In the context of adaptation to higher education, subjective well-being is analyzed, considering career adaptability and other vocational, academic and social variables. The participants are first- and second-year undergraduates (n = 273), from Lisbon schools, among which 82% are female. They responded to the Career Adaptability Scale, Development and Well-being Scale and the Adjustment and Adaptation to Higher Learning Questionnaire. The results show that Career Adaptability, namely Control and Confidence, and the adaptive factors of Career Perspective, Time Management, Relationship with Peers, and Evaluation Anxiety as a negative factor, are predictors of well-being. Furthermore, inferential statistics shows greater adaptation in second year students in comparison with first year students. Implications for interventions are discussed.

Keywords : School adjustment; subjective well-being; career adaptability; psychosocial factors; higher education.
