RIZZATTI, Daniela Bach et al. Career transitions in brazilian adults: a review of scientific literature. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.1, pp. 153-173. ISSN 1983-8220.

This study presents a review of the Brazilian scientific literature regarding career transition among adults. We selected 10 articles published between the years 2000 and 2015 from the Science Direct, SciELO and Periódico Capes databases. The selected texts were analyzed according to five aspects: publication year, methodological design, sample, study objective and primary findings. The articles analyzed approached two main transitions: from university to the job market and inside the job market. The results showed the importance of career planning, as well as the knowledge of the labor market, during adults' career transition processes. Furthermore, the findings indicate that the transition is a time of reflection and self-knowledge, which requires making important decisions. Finally, the results point to the scarcity of publications on unplanned career transitions, such as involuntary dismissals.
