Abstract

The contribution of this dissertation is twofold. First, it aims to advance existing knowledge on the role of personality traits in explaining work-related outcomes. The focus of this first contribution lies on the effect that different personality traits have on actual career transitions, such as starting one’s own business or changing one’s job into hierarchically higher positions. Second, it challenges our current understanding of personality as an immutable disposition that is regarded solely as a predictor of work-related outcomes. More specifically, it examines whether personality traits not only predict, but also follow from certain career transitions, including self-employment, upward job changes into managerial and professional positions, unemployment, and reemployment. By investigating such reciprocal influences between personality traits and career transitions, I hope to advance our understanding of the dynamic role that personality plays at work.
