This article presents the study of the validity of the content of the (Re)Career Scale: Coping Styles, consisting of 36 questions about how different people, 55 or older, think and feel about career transitions. The scale was evaluated by recognized experts in the field of vocational guidance (n = 6) and by a group of participants (n = 4) belonging to the target group for which the instrument is intended. The content validity of the scale was assessed through the analysis of the relevance and clarity of the items, as well as the relationship between each item and its dimension. The results obtained indicate satisfactory qualities regarding relevance (CVI =.991; Kappa =.488), the association between item and factor (%agreement = 95%) and apparent validity, and improvements were suggested regarding the clarity of some items (CVI =.944; Kappa =.379). These results justify the investment in future empirical validation studies namely through factor analyses
