Abstract

This study examined the relationships between personality, goal orientation, and the job preferences individuals have early in their careers. This information provides a better understanding of the contributors to individual job preferences early in one’s career allowing career counselors and placement centers to better advise individuals in job seeking, and also shows organizations how to target recruitment efforts to enhance applicant acceptance of job offers. Job preferences were divided into four categories, including Long-term Security, Financial Interests, Intrinsic and Personal Interests, and Prestige. A model was tested linking the dispositional variables to the job preferences among 158 participants. Results showed that some dispositional variables can indeed predict individual’s job preferences.
