Abstract

The present study investigates the influence of training goal orientations on job search and reemployment outcomes among unemployed people who were searching for a job. Unemployed individuals (N = 109) were randomly assigned to one of three training conditions: (1) Learning goal orientated training (LGO), (2) Performance goal orientated training (PGO), and (3) control group. LGO is defined as focusing on increasing competences whereas PGO is defined as focusing on demonstrating competences. Participants of the LGO-training had more intentions to search for a job and more activities than the other participants. Logistic regression demonstrated that participants of the LGO-training had five times more change to find a job than the other participants. These results lead us to conclude that the LGO-training is an effective tool for reemployment counseling.
