MARQUES, Cátia  and  TAVEIRA, Maria do Céu. Career Self-Management Program for College Students: Qualitative Analysis of the Process. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.2, pp. 123-136. ISSN 1984-7270.

The evaluation of the career intervention process is a research gap. This study presents the qualitative evaluation of the process of a career self-management program for university students, with six weekly sessions of 120 minutes each, held with eight distinct groups. Forty-two students, three psychologists and one supervisor participated. The content of the answers to open questions at the beginning, during and at the end of the intervention process was analyzed. The students’ expectations were met, above all, in terms of fostering support and career adaptability. The first sessions satisfied expectations of greater knowledge of oneself, of the environment and of career certainty, and the last ones of future projection and planning. The evaluation of the process demonstrates the impact of the program.

Keywords : career guidance; higher education; adaptability.
