A study published by Drs. Connie Wanberg, Ruth Kanfer, Darla Hamann, and Zhen Zhang in Psychological Bulletin has recently been picked up and cited by popular press outlet, USA Today. The original study is a meta-analysis which found that older adults who have lost their jobs remain unemployed longer than younger adults. This relationship is partially mediated by job search self-efficacy and job search intensity.
