This study attempts to analyze the relation between the underlying dimensions of protean (self direction and values driven) and boundaryless (boundaryless mindset and organizational mobility preference) career attitudes and organizational commitment, within today's unstable and uncertain business scenario. Drawing on a sample of 150 professionals, research results suggest that self-direction in managing one's own career and vocational development and embracing a buindaryless mindset contribute positively and significantly to individuals' emotional attachment to their organizations.
