Do personality traits predict students’ interest and intentions toward working in the tourism and hospitality industry? Evidence from a developing country

Drawing upon the Social Cognitive Career Theory (SCCT), this study aimed at predicting students’ interests and intentions to pursue a career in the tourism and hospitality (T&H) industry. Specifically, the study hypothesized that personality traits would have significant impacts on students’ self-efficacy and outcome expectations, which would further influence their interests and intentions toward working in the T&H industry. The results of the structural model showed that Openness to Experience and Conscientiousness significantly influence students’ self-efficacy and outcome expectations. However, Neuroticism and Agreeableness do only influence outcome expectations. Self-efficacy and outcome expectations were both significantly associated with students’ intentions to work in the industry. Implications for T&H educationalists and careers researchers, and directions for future research are also discussed.

Despite the importance of university events in students’ lives and experiences, little research has been devoted to understand the behavioral intentions of university students to attend such extra-curricular activities. This study, therefore, examined the behavioral intentions of university students to attend university events. The study successfully extended the theory of reasoned action (TRA) through incorporating a new variable cultural exploration, as a proposed predictor of students’ behavioral intentions. An online survey was conducted with students in a number of southeastern US public universities. Results of the structural model analysis revealed that attitudes, subjective norms, and cultural exploration have a significant positive impact on the university students’ behavioral intention to attend university events. Moreover, attitude was found to mediate the effect of cultural exploration and subjective norms on …

This study investigates the relationships between challenge and hindrance stressors and hotel employees’ interpersonal citizenship behaviors (ICB). The study also tests the moderating role of hotel employees’ psychological capital (PsyCap) on the aforementioned relationships. Data were collected from 213 U.S. hotel frontline employees. The results showed that both challenge and hindrance stress had a negative relationship with ICB. PsyCap was found to moderate both relationships. Implications for hospitality researchers and industry practitioners are discussed along with the limitations and suggested avenues for future research.

This study aims to explore the relationship between performance appraisal and psychological contract (PC) from the perspective of U.S. hotel employees, as perceived by different generational cohorts. The current study also examines the moderating role of generational difference on the relationship between perceived performance appraisal purpose (PAP) and hotel employees’ PC. A sample of 230 full time frontline U.S.-based hotel employees was employed to investigate these relationships. Hierarchical multiple regressions were used for data analysis and the results indicated that both administrative and developmental PAP were positively associated with PC. The positive relationship between administrative PAP and PC was significantly strengthened for Generation Y employees than for Baby Boomers and Generation Xers. There was no significant moderation effect of generational difference on the positive …
