Procrastination in job-seeking : an analysis of motivational processes and feelings of hopelessness.
|Authors:||Sénécal, Caroline; Guay, Frédéric|
|Abstract:||The purpose of this study was to propose and test a model of procrastination in job-seeking activities. This model posits that non self-determined job-seeking motivation (i.e., performing job-seeking activities because of controls and pressure) is positively related to procrastination in job-seeking activities. In addition, decisional procrastination is expected to be positively related to procrastination in job-seeking activities. In turn, procrastination in job-seeking is hypothesized to positively predict change in hopelessness toward job-seeking. Participants were 345 university students who were about to graduate. Results from regression analyses revealed that all hypothesized links were supported. Discussion centers on the role of motivation in procrastination toward job-seeking.|
