Sense of Coherence Predicts Employment Outcomes after Job Loss
Vastamaki, Jaana; Paul, Karsten I.; Moser, Klaus
Journal of Employment Counseling, v48 n3 p100-104 Sep 2011
This study investigated sense of coherence (SOC) as a potential predictor of employment outcomes of unemployed job seekers. Ninety-eight unemployed persons were surveyed at 2 measurement points 6 months apart. The findings showed that strong SOC at baseline predicted positive outcomes (reemployment or being a student) 6 months later. SOC evidently is an important personal resource that enhances the chances of escaping unemployment. (Contains 2 tables.)
