BARROS, Leonardo de Oliveira; MOREIRA, Thaline da Cunha; MARTINS, Gustavo Henrique  and  AMBIEL, Rodolfo Augusto Matteo. Career adaptability assessment in graduate students. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.2, pp. 177-184. ISSN 1984-7270.

The present study aimed to verify the levels of career adaptability of graduate students in function of sociodemographic and academic variables. The sample consisted of 645 students, majority female (72.9%), aged between 21 and 56 years. A questionnaire developed for this research was administered that sought to collect personal and academic information and the Career Adapt-Abilities Scale (CAAS). The results showed that students who said they were more satisfied to be in a graduate course also presented higher scores on the dimensions of career adaptability, which may indicate that they tend to cope better with possible career transitions.

Keywords : Higher education; psychological assessment; career counseling.
