Drawing on social cognitive career theory, we report a time-lagged study over six months analyzing the indirect effect of protean career orientation on changes in job satisfaction and turnover intention via goal progress. Specifically, we found that protean career orientation was positively related with goal progress, which in turn was associated with increases in job satisfaction and decreases in turnover intention over time. Career management practices moderated the indirect effect of protean career orientation on these job attitudes. This effect was observed because the relationship between goal progress with changes in job satisfaction and turnover intention became less salient when organizations offered a high extent of formal career practices. We discuss the implications for research and practice.
