Job Search Attitude Inventory

Self-scoring, self-interpreting, consumable, no other components needed.

When it comes to finding a job, attitude is everything. Most job coaches and counselors would agree that a person's mindset and motivation when looking for a job are the keys to finding one quickly. The Job Search Attitude Inventory (JSAI) helps individuals identify their attitudes about looking for a job and then offers suggestions for becoming more active and self-directed in the job search.

The JSAI asks job seekers whether they agree or disagree with 40 statements about the job search process. Users then profile their scores in five categories: luck vs. planning, uninvolved vs. involved, help from others vs. self-help, passive vs. active, and optimistic vs. pessimistic.

The assessment helps them to identify mental and attitudinal barriers that might be keeping them from finding work and discover strategies for improving their attitudes and re-energizing their job searches.

This edition adds a fifth scale (optimistic vs. pessimistic) and includes revised items and instructions and additional tips for improving one's outlook and increasing one's job search success.
