In our current world of constant change, the sense of being able to process and adapt to the continuous change in the organisational environment is a necessity. To ensure this takes place over a given period, to ensure the best effectiveness, which involves both personal meaning and career adaptability issues, are what marks the starting point of this literature review. This study is essentially needed to ensure future studies into these factors. The study focuses on career adaptability, this which will offer an overview of the concept of career-related adaptability and its literature perspective. After all the relevant studies have been reviewed, the factors will be analysed and grouped. As the 4 Cs of career adaptability (concern, control, curiosity and confidence), along with a brief historical contextualisation of the position these variables have/had in career adaptability studies, the most basic meanings of this building principle are first introduced. This is accompanied by selective analysis of current literature into career adaptability-dependent characteristics/variables. Finally, we can define these concepts/factors as contributing to the broader context designed to explain the factors of career adaptability in the organisational world by looking at the idea of all factors associated with career adaptability as an activity, rather than a structure, particularly in a changing organisational environment. In an evolving and changing corporate environment, this will be regarded as one of the components of the multidimensional principle of career adaptation. Conclusions bring this analysis to an end, summarising from the results the most useful and critical ideas offered.
