Purpose: To test a meditation model of the relationship between core self-evaluations (CSE) and job satisfaction in employed individuals with disabilities. Method: A quantitative descriptive design using Hayes's (2012) PROCESS macro for SPSS and multiple regression analysis. Two-hundred fifty-nine employed persons with disabilities were recruited from Amazon Mechanical Turk to participate in the study. Results: Support from supervisors, work engagement, wage, and job stress were found to partially mediate the relationship between CSE and job satisfaction. The direct effect of CSE on job satisfaction was still significant after controlling for the effects of all mediators. Conclusions: CSE affected job satisfaction in persons with disabilities, both directly and through improved supervisory support, greater engagement in work, increased pay, and decreased job stress. Implications of the results on rehabilitation counseling practice to improve job satisfaction in clients with disabilities are discussed.
