OLIVEIRA, Manoela Ziebell de et al. Validation of the Brazilian Version of the Boundaryless Career Attitudes Scale. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.62, n.3, pp. 106-114. ISSN 1809-5267.
The concept of a boundaryless career refers to the different degrees of physical and psychological mobility an individual faces throughout successive employment situations. The present article aimed to explore the factorial structure of the BCAS in a Brazilian sample. It was composed by three studies conducted with two independent samples: 1) pilot, 2) validation and 3) group comparison. Participants were 446 Brazilian professionals divded into two independent samples. The final version of the scale was composed of 10 items, had KMO of 0.82, and the explained variance was 63.3%. The reliability (Cronbach´s alpha) of the general scale (0.77), of the psychological mobility subscale (0.88) and of the physical mobility subscale (0.79) were favorable. The Brazilian version of the BCAS is presented as a valuable tool in the assessment and monitoring of interventions in career counseling and career planning.
