FIORINI, Milena Carolina; BARDAGI, Marucia Patta  and  SILVA, Narbal. Career adaptability: paradigms of the concept in the contemporary world of work. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.3, pp. 236-247. ISSN 1984-6657.

This article analyzes the epistemological, theoretical, and methodological perspectives for the concept of career adaptability within an evolutionary framework in the field of organizational and work psychology, and more specifically in the area of career counseling. The epistemological quadrants scheme suggested by Burrell and Morgan (1979) was used as reference to identify the paradigmatic changes that the career adaptability construct was assuming, since its elaboration in the '80s until the present. The article also aims to present the importance of career adaptability in the contemporary world of work, as well as the multifaceted and dynamic aspects that various studies and career counseling practice have adopted regarding the concept, from both approaches - paradigmatic and methodological.

Keywords : Career adaptability; paradigm; counseling.
