Adolescence is a period of search for professional identity, which requires consideration of interests and relevant choice criteria. This study aimed to examine the relationship of the intentions of choices, professional interests and the criterion for professional choice. Participated in this study 203 students from public and private schools, from sixth grade of elementary school to third year of high school, aged between 12 and 32 years. The professions mentioned by participants were categorized according to the dimensions of the EAP, verifying correlation between these categories and dimensions. The correlation between interests and criteria showed low to moderate relationships between some dimensions of the EAP and the ability to obtain social recognition through their work and take into account the views familiar to choose a profession. The results are discussed in light of the scientific literature and suggested further studies with this theme.

Keywords : professional counseling; psychological assessment; professional interests.
