PINZON, Juanita Hincapié; SANCHEZ, Guilherme Monteiro; MACHADO, Wagner de Lara  y  OLIVEIRA, Manoela Ziebell de. Career-related Barriers and Mental Health of Graduate Students. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.2, pp. 189-201. ISSN 1984-7270.

Career-related barriers are circumstances related to the individual or the context that hinder career advancement. This study sought to identify career barriers perceived by Brazilian graduate students. The 1619 participants answered an online survey with psychometric instruments and one open-ended question regarding the main career barriers faced. Descriptive statistical analyzes included mean, and frequency of the sample characterization data and semantic network analyzes of the linguistic data on the career-related barriers. The main results indicate moderate levels of depression, anxiety, and stress and that “lack of time” and “the academic advisor” are the most recurrent barriers in self-reports. We conclude that professional and career guidance is relevant to assisting academics in training to achieve career success and mental health.

Palabras clave : professional success; professional development; roles; self-report.
