Content: Purpose: This study main purpose was to analyze the attitude of students that complete a master's degree in job search process. In this sense, it was intended to assess the moderating effect of self-efficacy and the perceived social support from family, friends and significant others between co-rumination and job search attitude. It was also planned assessing how positive and negative affect moderates these moderations.
Design/Methodology: The sample consists of 87 subjects, whose data were collected every two weeks for six months. The data contain a hierarchical structure with 13 observations within each person. Multilevel modeling techniques have been developed to analyze the data. Several moderated moderations models with three way interactions were tested. A series of multilevel confirmatory factor analyses were first conducted to confirm the dimensionality. The analysis type is two-level random in R.
Results: Findings show positive conditional effect of high co-rumination on job search attitude by low self-efficacy and low positive affect; positive conditional effect of high co-rumination on job search attitude by high self-efficacy and high
positive affect; positive conditional effect of high co-rumination on job search attitude by any level of perceived social support from friends and low positive affect; higher co-rumination decreases on job search attitude by low perceived social support from friends and high positive affect; higher co-rumination increases on job search attitude by high perceived social support from friend and high positive affect.
Research / Practical Implications: The findings of the current study provide important implications on the role of co-rumination and perceived self-efficacy, perceived social support, positive and negative affect in the job search process.
