Vuori, Jukka; Vesalainen, Janne
Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, v72 pt4 p523-38 Dec 1999
Finnish job seekers (n=559) were followed up after 1 year (n=401) after 84.3% participated in guidance courses, subsidized employment, vocational training, or some combination. Guidance courses enhanced reemployment. None of the interventions increased job-seeking activity. Training temporarily decreased psychological distress. Deteriorating financial conditions increased job-seeking activity. (SK)
