The impact of personality traits on active and passive job search, career ambition and job satisfaction (English)
Abstract [en]

Previous research has focused limited attention on how personality affects job search for university educated people in work and no studies have focused on the difference between active and passive job seekers. This survey-based study that examined university educated economists and engineers with 5-25 years of experience, showed that career ambition mediated active job search for the personality dimensions of openness, agreeableness and extraversion and also gave clear evidence that active job seekers have lower levels of job satisfaction, and higher levels of career ambition, agreeableness and extraversion, compared with passive job seekers. These findings provide a more nuanced picture of the impact of different recruitment strategies and provide a starting point for in-depth studies on passive job seekers

Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning har riktat begränsad uppmärksamhet mot hur personlighet påverkar jobbsökande för akademiker i arbete och inga studier har fokuserat på skillnaden mellan aktivt och passivt jobbsökande. Denna enkätbaserade studie som undersökt universitetsutbildade ekonomer och ingenjörer med 5-25 års erfarenhet, visade att karriärambition medierade aktivt jobbsökande för personlighetsdimensionerna öppenhet, samstämmighet och extraversion och gav också tydliga belägg för att aktivt jobbsökande har lägre grad av arbetstillfredställelse, och högre grad av karriärambition, samstämmighet och extraversion, jämfört med passivt jobbsökande. Dessa rön ger en mera nyanserad bild av konsekvenser av olika rekryteringsstrategier och utgör en utgångspunkt för fördjupade studier beträffande passivt jobbsökande.
