Most research on career adaptability has examined the construct as an individual differences variable and neglected that it may vary within an individual over a short period of time. In two daily diary studies, the author investigated the relationships of career adaptability and its four dimensions (concern, control, curiosity, and confidence) to their daily manifestations as well as daily job and career outcomes. Both Study 1 (N = 53) and Study 2 (N = 234) demonstrated substantial within-person variability in employees’ behavioral expressions of career adaptability across five work days. Results further showed that daily career adaptability and daily confidence positively predicted daily task and career performance, as well as daily job and career satisfaction. Daily control positively predicted daily task performance, as well as daily job and career satisfaction. Daily concern positively predicted daily career performance and satisfaction, and daily curiosity positively predicted daily career satisfaction.
Summary and Interpretation of Results Consistent with expectations based on career construction theory (Savickas, 1997, 2013), daily career adaptability positively predicted daily task and career performance, as well as daily job and career satisfaction in Study 2. The trend of the effect of daily career adaptability on daily task performance in Study 1 was in the expected direction but, probably due to the relatively small sample size and associated issues with statistical power, did not reach conventional levels of significance. Career construction theory suggests that individuals with high levels of career adaptability possess greater competence and more psychosocial resources to adapt to and manage work- and career-related demands (Savickas, 1997). Higher adaptation and successful management of demands should, in turn, enhance employees’ job and career outcomes. The analyses of effects of the four daily career adaptability dimensions provided a more differentiated perspective. Specifically, results showed that daily control positively predicted daily task performance, as well as job and career satisfaction, but not daily career performance. Daily confidence positively predicted all four job and career outcomes. Thus, on days on which employees showed more behaviors associated with control and confidence (e.g., making independent decisions, solving problems; Savickas & Porfeli, 2012), their perceived task performance, as well as their job and career satisfaction were higher than on days on which they did not express behaviors associated with control and confidence. A potential explanation for these findings is that daily control and confidence behaviors are conceptually related to task motivation, self-concordance, and goal-setting behavior (Erez & Judge, 2001; Judge et al., 2005), and they are related to characteristics such as self-efficacy and internal locus of control that contribute to effective task performance, as well as job and career satisfaction (cf. Hirschi et al., 2015; Öncel, 2014; Zacher, 2014a).
