Racial differences in job attribute preferences

In this study we examine ethnic identity and Psychological Capital as cognitive and psychological variables impacting differences in job attribute preferences between blacks and whites. Previous research has demonstrated differences between blacks and whites on job attribute preferences.  However, no research has investigated the influence of cognitive variables or psychological states of individuals in explaining differences between blacks and whites.  Job attribute preferences were examined using a sample of black (N=190) and white (N=149) college students
