RAMOS, Camila Carvalho; COSTA, Thiago Dias  and  FEITOSA, Izabella Oliveira. Mapping inconsistencies between competencies established in the academic training of organizational psychologist and those required by the labor market. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp. 114-120. ISSN 1984-6657.

There is a consensus that organizations are the object of study and intervention of organizational psychologists. However, there is still no clarity as to what "competencies" should be developed by such professionals for the exercise of their profession. In view of this, our study aimed to investigate: (a) the competencies required for the psychologist trainee to perform in the area of staff management and (b) the competence gap between the expectation of the labor market and the curricular guidelines of the psychology course. For that, competence mapping and evaluation procedure was carried out focusing such trainees. The results suggest that the training curriculum was flawed, since competencies considered critical for the formation of the organizational psychologist presented a high gap and an urgent need for training. It is important to highlight that the competency mapping methodology was adequate for the purposes of the research presented here.

Keywords : organizational psychology; competency; job market.
