The role of personality, situational, and demographic variables in predicting job search among European managers Academic Article uri icon


  • This research investigates predictors of job search activity among high-level European managers. We examined the role of personality in predicting job search over and above the effects of situational and demographic variables. Results found that the personality traits extraversion and neuroticism predicted job search, and the effects were found in the presence of situational and demographic variables shown in prior research as particularly important determinants of job search activity. 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
