Late adolescence or by the age of 20, adolescence enter during the transition to early adulthood. One of the developmental tasks experienced by individuals during this period is the establishment of career identities. In an effort to meet the establishment of identity is required career adaptability. Career adaptability is a psychosocial construct that shows individual resources to overcome and anticipate tasks, transitions, traumas in job roles, to some degree large or small, that alter the social integration of individuals. Based on the theory of career construction, the authors conducted a literature review of 16 journals on empirical studies of factors that cause career adaptability and its influence in the educational context. The results show that career adaptability is associated with multiple demographic factors (age, gender), career adaptivity (conscientiousness, positive emotional disposition, belief in ability, future orientation, hope, optimism, adversity quotient and self-regulation), and external factors (social support parents, family support, school environment). The success of career adaptability in the educational context is associated with life satisfaction, sense of power, career management, career certainty, classroom involvement, academic achievement and academic fatigue. The main findings are career adaptability influenced by demographic factors, career readiness: internal factors (personality) and individual external factors. Career adaptability leads to positive and negative effects on the individual in the educational context.
