Main Abstract Content: Evidence suggests that job insecurity is detrimental for health and well-being. Despite the empirical advancements in this area, there is still the need to develop and validate measurements for specific operationalisations of job insecurity. Additionally, there is the need to test for moderators of the job insecurity-outcomes relationships, which might help developing interventions for practice. The aim of this symposium is to address these gaps in the literature. The symposium consists of the following 5 oral presentations: 
1) Annabelle Hofer, Daniel Spurk, Andreas Hirschi, Nele De Cuyper, and Hans De Witte. The Nature and Measurement of Career Insecurity: Development and Initial Validation of a New Scale
2) Gabriel Fischmann, Tinne Vander Elst, Coralia Sulea, Nele De Cuyper, Dragos Iliescu & Hans De Witte.The Qualitative Job Insecurity scale (QUAL-JI)
3) Mauricio E. Garrido Vasquez, Kristin Weiß, and Kathleen Otto. Qualitative and quantitative job insecurity and their consequences: The moderated role of appreciation
4) Anahi Van Hootegem, Hans De Witte, Nele De Cuyper and Tinne Vander Elst. Job insecurity in relation to training willingness: The moderating role of perceived employability
5) Francesco Montani, François Courcy, Hans De Witte. Insecure, yet mindful! The effects of job insecurity on intrinsic motivation and innovative work behavior as moderated by mindfulness
