|SOCIAL CAPITAL AND JOB SEARCH SUCCESS: THE CASE OF UNDERGRADUATES IN HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM||Views: 168||Download|
The literature has proven the positive role of social capital on job search success, but the researchers' community has not been convinced completely because social capital is not always good. Moreover, only certain dimensions of the two latent variables were analyzed in the previous research though they are multidimensional.This paper approached the social capital and job search success multidimensionally by applying Partial Least Square -Structural Equation Model (PLS-SEM) to explore the path that social capital impacts on job search success. The primary data of 400 undergraduates in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam were used in the model. The results have confirmed the positive role of bonding social capital and general trust on acquired job quality, job search cost and job search convenience.
