MENDONCA, Tatiane Rose Oliveira de  and  DOS SANTOS, Larissa Medeiros Marinho. Trajectories of former Professional Orientation Programs' participants: contexts and choices. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.1, pp. 67-77. ISSN 1984-7270.

From choosing a profession to its effectiveness, there is a long path to go. Aiming to understand how this path is taken, we analyzed the educational and professional trajectories of five graduates from a Professional Orientation program, focusing on the dialectical relationship between context elements and subjectsˈ choices and actions. The research was methodologically guided by the Qualitative Epistemology of González Rey. Documentary analysis, open interviews and geno-job-profile diagram were used for data production. As a result, we identified areas of meaning related to: peer and family influences; family as the basis of professional development; obstacles to socio-economic and health conditions; strategies for access to courses and better job placement; opportunities; training and professional performance; future projects.

Keywords : vocational guidance; professional choice; qualitative research.
