The research on the assessment of career interventions effectiveness indicates that an increasing number of different entities become interested in obtaining evidence about the efficacy of career services and, in general, it has been confirmed that career interventions are effective, causing positive changes in the career development of clients (Fretz, 1981; Holland, Magoon & Spokane, 1981; Myers, 1986; Swanson, 1995 in Whiston, Brecheisen & Stephens, 2003). Accordingly, this article focuses on a first development study of a Self Career Management Seminar (GPC, Taveira, Loureiro, Araújo, Silva, & Faria, 2005), designed for doctoral students of the University of Minho, in Portugal. The psychological intervention was carried out with a limited number of cases (N = 5, 2 women and 3 men, aged between 28 and 30 years and developing their research/doctorate in Engineering and Production Systems, Environment, Quality and Safety at Work, Information Systems, Civil Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science domains), who voluntarily enrolled in the program, during the academic year 2006/07. The impact of the intervention was evaluated in terms of career exploration process and progress on valued career goals, as assessed by the Career Exploration Survey (CES; Stumpf, Colarelli & Hartman, adapt. by Taveira, 1997) and the Adult Career Concerns Inventory (ACCI; Super, Thompson & Lindeman, 1985, adapt. by Duarte, 1987), at a pre- and post-test. The main results of the study will be discussed and implications for the development of the program will be considered.
