SOUZA, Marcelo Ferreira de; SANTOS, Ana Clarissa Matte Zanardo dos  and  SOUZA, Marilaine Quadros Becker de. Employability in the bioecological model of human development in vulnerability contexts. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.4, pp. 1775-1784.. ISSN 1984-6657.

Based on Bronfenbrenner's Bioecological Model of Human Development, this qualitative study aims to understand how psychosocial characteristics influence young people's employability and future expectations. For data collection, two focus groups and twelve individual interviews were carried out with young people who live in a situation of social vulnerability, in addition to four interviews with professionals who interact with young people in the institution that participates in the Young Apprentice program. From the content analysis technique, it was possible to understand the negative influence of career adaptability, career identity, and human and social capital on the employability of young people. In terms of physical, economic, and social factors; low income, housing conditions, and social well-being are determining factors in the low development of young people, in addition to negatively impacting educational and professional expectations.

Keywords : employability; young; social vulnerability.
