Abstract

This research was conducted to see the influence of trait competitiveness on job search intensity through four dimensions by Newby and Klein (2014): General Competitiveness, Dominant Competitiveness, Competitive Affectivity and Personal Enhancement Competitiveness. A total of 254 participants who were job seekers completed the online questionnaire of Competitiveness Orientation Measure (2014) and Job Search Behavior Scale (2004). The results showed that there was a positive influence from Dominant Competitiveness dimension on two phases of Job Search Intensity, Preparatory Job Search (R2 = 0,139, β = 0,372, p<0,05) and Active Job Search (R2 = 0,067, β = 0,259, p<0,05). These results indicate that Indonesian job seekers from Generation Y with high-level tendencies of dominant competitiveness caused by the desire to outperform other people influenced their level of intention to seek a job.
