VASCONCELLOS, Vinicius Carvalho; BORGES-ANDRADE, Jairo Eduardo; PORTO, Juliana Barreiros  e  FONSECA, Ana Márcia de Oliveira. Careers in organizations: a review of the brazilian literature in the micro-organizational behavior field. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp. 73-87. ISSN 1984-6657.

This paper systematically reviews empirical articles on careers, specifically from the micro-organizational behavior perspective. The papers were published as recently as June 2012 in the SciELO Brasil and PePSIC databases. Approximately 20 terms such as career, professional trajectory, and professional path were used to retrieve papers. In the end, 60 articles were found.The analysis followed procedures already used in three previous reviews in the micro-organizational behavior field. We investigated career themes, authorship, year and vehicle of publication, as well as various elements relating to method, such as instruments and sample. The results show prior career path as the most frequent category in the sample (32% of the total). The review also indicates a recent growth in the number of publications and a considerable alignment between the articles on career and the articles on the micro-organizational behavior area in general. However, less effort has been detected in career studies toward validating instruments. Based on the analyzed data, this paper discusses the integration of career studies in the micro-organizational behavior area. It also examines how the time frames (present, past, and future) are addressed in this literature. In conclusion, we propose a research agenda for investigating careers in organizations.
