Gratitude and job search among business school students

1543 view(s)


This study examined trait gratitude as a relevant predictor of perceived employability, a personal resource important for student job search among business school students in Canada. The findings support the idea that trait gratitude indirectly influences preparatory job search behavior, but not active job search behavior, through perceived employability. Implications for trait gratitude appear to be important for broader career development research and practice particularly with students seeking employment.

Fintech, a contraction of "finance" and "technology," refers to companies that use technology to offer innovative financial services that are often more accessible or less expensive than traditional banks. Decentralized finance (DeFi) is a suite of financial services that are not controlled by a central authority. It uses blockchain technology to create financial applications that operate without intermediaries such as banks, financial institutions, or governments.

Femvertising is a term for advertising that utilizes pro-female talent, messaging, and imagery to empower and uplift women and girls. It is a successful approach for brands to create a positive emotional connection with their consumers through a sense of pride and inspiration that drives deeper engagement and brand loyalty. When brands use pro-female messages for profit without a genuine commitment to gender equality and body inclusivity, femvertising risks being perceived as a form of opportunism. This lack of authenticity in advertising can lead to femwashing.

Brand Hate encompasses a variety of negative emotions towards a brand, such as anger, disgust, contempt, and disappointment. It is often rooted in ideological incompatibility, which refers to a conflict between a brand's values and those of the consumer, as well as negative experiences and corporate misconduct. In addition, symbolic or image incongruence can contribute to brand hate, particularly when there's a mismatch between the typical image of a brand and the consumer's self-image. In response to these feelings of brand hate, consumers typically adopt one of two coping strategies: avoidance, similar to a flight response, or revenge, similar to a fight response.

Drawing on the Foucauldian technologies of the self, this study explores how individuals re-envision practices of wellbeing outside of traditional organizational contexts during extreme events. Based on a thematic analysis of 7,234 comments posted on the Yoga with Adriene YouTube channel in 2020, this study unpacks a technologically mediated practice of self-care, which we conceptualize as somametamnemata. Our findings illustrate three entangled aspects of somametamnemata relating to yoga, a form of bodywork: Caring about self through practicing yoga online; caring about self and others through sharing about yoga in written comments; and caring about self and others through responding to shared verbalizations of yoga. By situating the potentiality of individual wellbeing within ill-being, we shift debates and discussions of “corporate wellness” beyond organizational boundaries.
Shame is an emotional experience that occurs when you fail to meet the expectations of others and end up with a negative image of yourself that makes you perceive yourself to be inferior or weak to others. Shame does not only happen when we do something in front of others, but it can also happen when someone in our group does something that makes us look bad. Shame can arise for individual or collective actions.

Impostor syndrome is a phenomenon well studied by psychologists. It is predominant among people with exceptional skills, and also very common among women. This can happen for a variety of reasons, but two factors seem very important: family dynamics and pressure to perform at work. Impostor’s syndrome can have significant consequences not only for the person suffering from it, but also for those around them.

Frustration is a very common negative emotional experience at work in a client environment that can occur in a variety of circumstances, usually present when our goals are blocked, and there is some degree of uncertainty about the causes of the problem, that we think this is unfair, that we can’t control it. What happens once you feel frustrated is that you can either “drop out” or persevere, and what you do in terms of actions to take may depend on personal and environmental factors.
