Abstract

Employer ratings of 16 frequently advocated assertive job-seeking behaviors were summarized in terms of whether or not each would enhance or diminish the applicant's chances for being offered employment. These ratings were further subjected to an Applicant Sex × Industry Size MANOVA. Data were derived from 272 employers listed as business or industrial organizations in the 1981 College Placement Annual. Some behaviors were clearly adaptive; others appeared to be self-defeating. The applicant's sex proved irrelevant to hiring decisions; however, company size influenced the employment potential of 5 assertive behaviors.
