In this study, it is aimed to examine the career adaptation processes of LGBT+ individuals in depth within the framework of Career Construction Theory's career construction model of adaptation. For this purpose, phenomenological research design, one of the qualitative research approaches, was used in this study. The study group consisted of 15 LGBT+ individuals reached through snowball sampling. The Personal Information Form, Semi Structured Interview Form, and The Future Career Autobiography Form were used to collect the data. The content analysis was employed on data obtained from the interviews. By retaining the four dimensions and sub-dimensions of the model of adaptation, the themes and the categories were created under each dimension and sub-dimension. In this sense, the findings of the career construction model of adaptation were grouped under (1) adaptivity, (2) adaptability (including sub-dimensions of concern, control, curiosity, and confidence), (3) adapting responses, and (4) adaptation results. A total of 14 themes and 31 categories were revealed. According to the findings, it is seen that LGBT+ individuals face problems in the career decision process and exploring career options. It was stated that they faced difficulties related to their gender identity and sexual orientation in the job search process and in their work lives. The results of the research are important in terms of understanding the coping strategies and managing the difficulties faced by LGBT+ individuals in their employability, changes in the business world, and career development. The findings were discussed within the scope of the literature and suggestions were presented.
