Job search intention, theory of planned behavior, personality and job search experience

Abstract : The present study aimed not only to confirm the paths between theory of planned behavior variables and job search intention with a French sample, but also to test the moderating effects of job search experience and two personality dimensions (extraversion and conscientiousness) on these paths. One hundred and fifty-four participants rated these concepts on a series of scales. Results showed that the theory of planned behavior variables were significantly related to job search intention, and that extraversion and conscientiousness moderated the paths between attitude and job search intention. Results are discussed with reference to the literature and their practical implications.
