Abstract

Optimistic perception of one’s future employability is critical for young people, being linked to motivation, behaviours, and well-being. We tested some antecedents and outcomes to perceived future employability (PFE) and their mediation effects. Responses (N = 324, 62.3% female, mean age 20.77 years) revealed that (1) career calling, strategies, proactivity, and encouragement were related to PFE, (2) PFE was related to career planning, performance, and satisfaction, and (3) PFE mediated all antecedents to satisfaction, but not to planning or performance.
