New research suggests that individual's cognitive-behavioral skills predict their ability to successfully getting a job. A team of researches from Ohio State University surveyed 140 unemployed adults using Amazons Mechanical Turk. They explore whether their ability to use cognitive-behavioral skills like behavioral activation when feeling in a low mood or addressing negative automatic thoughts predicted who would go on have a job offer. Individuals who reported a higher use of cognitive-behavioral skills were more likely to have received a job offer 3 months after the initial survey. What's more, cognitive-behavioral skills were stronger predictors of getting a job than other variables examined including gender, number of hours worked at a side job, or brooding. The researcher is published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology and is available online
