 Abstract
As the level of job-seeking stress increases among college students, increasing attention is being paid to the variables that would decrease its negative effects through brief intervention programs or counseling. As such, in the present study, we examined the effects of job-seeking stress on depression and psychological well-being, and whether resilience (internal variable) and social support (external variable) would moderate such effects. In other words, we tested whether the negative effects of job-seeking stress on depression and psychological well-being would be decreased by resilience and social support. A total of 264 fourth-year college students and unemployed 4-year college graduates, who were looking for jobs in private and public enterprises participated in this study. The results indicated that resilience moderated the relation between job-seeking stress and depression, while social support did not. In contrast, resilience did not moderate the relation between job-seeking stress and psychological well-being, whereas social support did. These results suggest that as resilience increases, the effect of job-seeking stress on depression decreases, whereas as social support increases, the effect of job-seeking stress on psychological well-being decreases.
