The association between work and family importance and job search behavior among career-interrupted men and women

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The present study examined how the personal importance of work and family were associated with job search behavior, and whether there were any gender differences in those associations. A sample of 284 career-interrupted women and men participated in the study. Accordingly, job search behavior and antecedent variables—including personal importance of work and family—were measured. Using regression analyses, gender differences in job search behavior were found. Personal importance of work and family also played significant roles, but in different ways for men and women, suggesting that differential societal norms may be at play.
