Rife, John C.; Belcher, John R.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v30 n3 p98-107 Sep 1993
Interviews with 54 unemployed workers over age 50 revealed that receiving positive social support from family and friends for their job search efforts was significantly related to job search intensity. Older workers perceived supportive messages from unemployed friends as more positive than messages from employed and retired family and friends. (Author/NB)
