Research on organizational behavior (POB) has found several factors that positively affect work engagement and job performance. Those factors have been categorized into resource and motivational factors. One of the resource factors is personal factors, which consist of esteem and efficacy. In fact, there are a lot more individual factors that affect work engagement and job performance, two of which are psychological capital and professionalism. This study intends to examine the impact of both variables on job performance while treating work engagement as a moderating variable. A sample of 590 lecturers from nine state universities in Indonesia participated in the study. SEM was used to analyze the data, which results were further analyzed using multigroup analysis in order to see the impact of psychological capital and professionalism depending on different groups of participants of the study. The findings revealed that psycap and professionalism were positively related to work engagement and job performance, while work engagement was not related to job performance and therefore it did not function as a moderating variable. Furthermore, the multigroup analysis did not find any differences among different universities as the group used in the study.
