The Effects of Reasons for Leaving and Changing Occupations on Emotions During Unemployment: A Focus on Young Unemployed Persons Intending to Change Occupation
OKADA Masaki（University of Tsukuba）
We conducted a study on a scale to measure the emotions of young unemployed people who intended to change occupation,during their unemployment. We conducted a web-based survey of 406 young people who had experience in changing occupations. The results showed that there were three factors that were titled as “affirmation of aspiration,” “anxiety and regret,” and “anger and dissatisfaction.” Furthermore,a path analysis showed that negative reasons for leaving and changing occupation led to feelings of “anxiety and regret” or “anger and dissatisfaction” during unemployment,and that positive reasons for leaving and changing occupation led to feelings of “affirmation of aspiration” during unemployment.
