In this context, cognitive aspects have been increasing in studies that associate human processes and organizations. This research initially aimed to adapt the Career Barriers Perception Inventory in Brazilian population. This research also aimed to analyze how perceptions of career barriers and adaptability influence employability and career satisfaction among undergraduate Administration students of Higher Education Institutions. The study was performed on a sample of 358 students with a mean age of 26,94 years (SD = 6,03), which 57,8% (N = 207) of these were female. The results indicated reliability and validity evidence for the reduced version of the Career Barriers Perception Inventory in Brazilian population. It was also evidenced the complexity about the understanding of individual perception career barriers process, as well reinforced that sociodemographic characteristics are potential indicators for understanding this process.
