Abstract

The present study tested the mediating role of career adaptability on the existing relation between trait emotional intelligence (EI) and academic engagement. The sample consisted of 590 Spanish university students with a mean age of 21.66 years. The results confirmed the positive relations of trait EI with career adaptability, as well as with academic engagement. A key finding concerns the confirmation of the mediating role of career adaptability on the relation between trait EI and academic engagement, supporting a model of total mediation. In confirming the existence of total mediation, this study makes a new and valuable contribution that allows for better and more precise clarification of the links between trait EI, career adaptability, and academic engagement. The discussion focuses on issues concerning the relation between these variables and the possibility of developing interventions to improve career adaptability and academic engagement in undergraduate populations.

Keywords:

Resumen

En el presente estudio se comprueba el papel mediador de la adaptabilidad a la carrera en la relación existente entre la inteligencia emocional (IE) rasgo y el compromiso académico. La muestra comprende 590 estudiantes universitarios españoles con una edad media de 21.66 años. En los resultados se confirman las relaciones positivas entre la IE rasgo, la adaptabilidad a la carrera y el compromiso académico. Un hallazgo clave es la confirmación del papel mediador de la adaptabilidad a la carrera, modelo de mediación total, en la relación entre la EI rasgo y el compromiso académico. Este estudio aporta una valiosa contribución científica que permite una mejor y más precisa aclaración de los vínculos entre la IE rasgo, la adaptabilidad profesional y el compromiso académico. La discusión se centra en las cuestiones relativas a la relación entre estas variables y la posibilidad de desarrollar intervenciones para mejorar la adaptabilidad profesional y el compromiso académico entre estudiantes universitarios.
