This study aims to clarify the differences in mid-career childcare workers’ views on their jobs according to their identity status. The Identity Status Scale (Kato, 1983) was used to assess 269 mid-career childcare workers, and a text mining analysis showed that their identity status reflected the differences in their perceptions of their jobs. For example, for the achievement, positive words such as “doing one’s best” and “efforts” were mentioned. On the other hand, for the diffusion, words regarding aptitude were mentioned, such as “it is suitable.” The differences in mid-career childcare workers’ perspectives on their jobs are also thought to influence them in the second half of their adulthood.
