Abstract

Overlapping models of employability have identified the importance of being willing to work hard to get ahead in one’s career. This paper focuses on Hogan, Chamorro-Premuzic, and Kaiser’s (2013) definition and model of employability, and explores the motivational component of this model; the willingness to work hard. This paper focuses on four personality dimensions; ambition, work ethic, conscientiousness, and proactivity, to help identify individuals that are willing to work hard toward his or her career intentions. Analysis revealed equivocal results in the fit of the model. However, correlations among variables revealed a relationship between the willingness to work hard and an individual’s career intentions.
