... Drawing from Guan et al.'s (2021) P-E fit theory, the career values fit facet of career embeddedness relates to the supplementary fit dimension of the P-E fit, according to which career development needs and career values play a fundamental role in the career identity management process. Career development needs and career values serve as relatively stable goals that direct individuals towards their goals and satisfy their needs in a societal context (Sampaio et al., 2021). According to Super (1990), life and career satisfaction depend on the degree to which individuals find an outlet for their abilities, needs, values, interests and career self-concepts. ...
... A Teoria da Psicologia do Trabalhar (TPT) surge com o propósito de que as teorias vocacionais e de carreira se tornem mais inclusivas, ampliando o foco para todos aqueles que trabalham e que querem trabalhar (Duffy, Blustein, Diemer, & Autin, 2016). Para essa teoria, os fatores socioculturais apresentam-se como primários para a compreensão das decisões e das experiências de trabalho de todas as pessoas e há uma ênfase ao incluir e atentar-se àqueles trabalhadores contingentes ou periféricos (Savickas, 2010), ou mesmo, os desempregados e em desalento (Blustein, 2006(Blustein, , 2013. Entende-se que pessoas marginalizadas (por questões raciais, étnicas, de classe social e de gênero, por exemplo), bem como aquelas com restrições econômicas ao longo de suas vidas, são indivíduos para os quais a força do contexto é primordial ao moldar as experiências do trabalhar. ...

La variabilità, l'incertezza, la complessità e tutti gli effetti collaterali di quella che Bauman definisce globalizzazione negativa espongono la persona all'impossibilità di dominare il cambiamento, di decidere autonomamente il proprio cammino, di fare previsioni per il futuro. L'era postmoderna è, infatti, caratterizzata da una serie di sfide connesse ai cambiamenti economici e alla globalizzazione; all'instabilità del mondo del lavoro; alla discontinuità; alle transizioni lavorative; alla pervasività delle nuove tecnologie (Savickas et al. 2009), che richiedono alla persona capacità di apprendimento continuo; capacità nell'uso delle nuove tecnologie; competenze di occupabilità; creazione delle proprie opportunità; flessibilità e capacità di adattamento.
