Future-Oriented Coping and Job Hunting among College Students
Hu, Yueqin; Gan, Yiqun
Psychological Record, v61 n2 p253-268 Spr 2011
Using a sample of Chinese college students (n = 216), the present study showed that future-oriented coping negatively correlated with perceived pressure and positively correlated with successful job hunting. The relationship between proactive coping and preventive coping was also explored. Structural equation modeling suggested that a sequence model was better than a parallel model; that is, proactive coping mediated the effect of preventive coping on perceived pressure and successful job hunting. They are sequential stages of one process rather than two separate processes. Students' appraisal of job hunting and their preparing and hunting behaviors were also investigated. (Contains 6 figures and 4 tables.)
