BARROS, Alexandra. Career beliefs in the transition higher education to work. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.2, pp. 133-142. ISSN 1984-7270.

Young people's career beliefs and their abilities to deal with vocational tasks influence their behavior in the higher education-work transition. The present study aims to evaluate the self-efficacy beliefs regarding the transition to work and the career and employability beliefs in 534 university students, 267 men and 267 women, to whom the Career Belief and Employability Inventory and the Self-Efficacy Scale in the Transition to Work are applied. Means, standard deviations, correlations and gender differences, are analyzed. The results reveal high averages in the beliefs underlying adaptive behaviors and attitudes towards the career transitions, with favorable differences for females in Flexibility, Challenges and Autonomy.

Keywords : Career beliefs; self-efficacy; higher education; transition.
