The Effect of Organization Attraction on Subjective P-O Fit：The Moderating Effect of Objective P-O Fit and Preference for Consistency
subjective P-O fit
objective P-O fit
preference for consistency
In the organization attraction literature, it is widely supported that objective person-organization fit (P-O fit) influences the subjective P-O fit, which, in turn, influences the organization attraction. However, the past research is not conducted in the experimental setting. Thus, the casual relation is precarious. In the present study, it is expected that organization attraction influences the subjective P-O fit, not the opposite. Besides, an experimental design is used to affirm the causal effect of the organization attraction on subjective P-O fit, which is ignored in the literature. In addition, the present study examined the mediating effects of subjective P-O fit on the relationship between organization attraction and intention to apply to a job. At last, the moderating effect of objective P-O fit and preference for consistency on the relationship between organization attraction and subjective P-O fit was examined. 83 soon-to-graduate students were invited to participate in the study. Participants were randomly assigned to read information of hypothetical company which was either low or high in organization attraction, and then completed the questionnaires. After two weeks, 60 of the 83 subjects completed another questionnaire of subjective fit and organization attraction, without reading any information. The results indicate that the organization attraction influences the participants’ subjective P-O fit (both Time1 and Time2). However, the moderating effects of both objective P-O fit and preference for consistency (PFC) are not significant. Finally, subjective P-O fit partially mediated the relationship between organization attraction and application intention (both Time1 and Time2). The implications of research findings are discussed.
