People who have an attitude to learn will have more success finding their dream jobs than their counterparts, reveals a new study.
In the study, Turban and Serge da Motta Veiga, found that people who had a strong learning goal orientation (LGO) reacted to failures by putting more intensity into the search process compared to job seekers who had a low LGO. Additionally, when the process was going well, individuals with a high LGO maintained or slightly increased their intensity, while those who had a low LGO decreased their intensity.
Turban and da Motta Veiga also mentioned that it's not just about genetics. People with a low LGO can learn techniques or behaviors to help them improve their LGO so they handle stress and failures better.
