This research connects job search behaviors and relocation willingness among a group of unemployed individuals. We carried out a survey on 301 unemployed individuals from Sicily (a south Italy island with an high rate of unemployment), using career decision self-efficacy as a predictor. Our results, consistent to most of our hypotheses, show how self-efficacy predicts either job search intensity and relocation willingness. Age, level of education and period of unemployment play a significant role as well. In conclusion we discuss theoretical and practical implications, about programs of vocational guidance and support to career transitions. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Abstract

This research connects job search behaviors and relocation willingness among a group of unemployed individuals. We carried out a survey on 301 unemployed individuals from Sicily (a south Italy island with an high rate of unemployment), using career decision self-efficacy as a predictor. Our results, consistent to most of our hypotheses, show how self-efficacy predicts either job search intensity and relocation willingness. Age, level of education and period of unemployment play a significant role as well. In conclusion we discuss theoretical and practical implications, about programs of vocational guidance and support to career transitions. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
