Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att beskriva, tolka och analysera framgångsrikt agerande vid påtvingade brytpunkter i karriärutvecklingen. Fem personer har fyllt i ett formulär samt intervjuats angående deras känslor, erfarenheter, motivation och nätverk relaterat till jobbsökandet. Resultatet visade att en mängd olika tillvägagångssätt använts, t.ex. att berätta för bekanta att de söker jobb, kontakta potentiella arbetsgivare samt risktagande. En del av handlandet utfördes med syftet att skaffa jobb, andra handlingar utfördes av andra anledningar, men hade ändå betydelse för framgången i att skaffa jobb. Erfarenheter och nätverk visade sig spela en stor roll och fyra sorters motivation identifierades. Grundantagandet (att personer som blivit arbetslösa och snabbt skaffat ny sysselsättning (1) har hög 'Self-efficacy' och (2) i stor utsträckning handlar i enlighet med 'Planned happenstance', och slutligen, (3) att dessa personer har en 'Intrinsic' motivation) kunde varken verifieras eller falsifieras till fullo och därmed diskuteras en del förslag till fortsatt forskning inom aktuellt problemområde. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to describe, interpret and analyse successful strategies used to obtain a job, when unemployed. Five persons have answered a short questionnaire and have been interviewed about their feelings, experiences, motivation and social network, all related to actions taken whilst searching for a job. The result was that a variety of actions were taken that brought them to finding a job, such as telling friends and other contacts that they are available for work, contacting potential employers and taking risks. Some actions were taken with the objective to find a job, and some were not. Experiences and the social network were found to play a big part and four different types of motivation were detected concerning finding a job. The hypothesis (that those who become unemployed and are successful in finding a new job (1) have a high Self-efficacy, (2) to a great extent take actions in accordance with Planned Happenstance Theory and lastly, (3) that they are mainly driven by an Intrinsic motivation) could not be fully verified on any account nor could it be completely falsified.
