Job Seekers' Perceptions of Teleworking: A Cognitive Mapping Approach.
Kerrin, Maire; Hone, Kate
New Technology, Work and Employment, v16 n2 p130-43 Jul 2001
College students (n=40) and nonstudent job seekers (n=20) rated four dimensions of telework. Results were plotted in cognitive maps. Students preferred office work to telework, citing lack of social interaction. Nonstudents, slightly older and more likely to be parents, slightly preferred telework. Targeting recruitment to account for these preferences was suggested. (Contains 34 references.) (SK)
