So-hyen Baek, Chang-gok Chang
Abstract
The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of job-seeking stress on appearance concerns and appearance management behaviors in college students. To achieve the purpose of this study, a survey was conducted on 228 students in universities located in Seoul, Gyeonggi Province and Cheonan. The findings of the study were as follows: First, the job-seeking stress of the college students was not that heavy, and they didn't show much appearance concerns or appearance management behaviors, either. The students who were in the higher academic year were under heavier job-seeking stress, and fourth grade students were particularly interested in appearance, and the female students showed more appearance concerns and expressed more satisfaction with their appearances than the male students. Second, job-seeking stress had a significant positive correlation with other orientation, activeness for better appearance, appearance management, appearance concerns, hair management behaviors, makeup behaviors, cosmetic-surgery management behaviors, skincare behaviors, body-shape management behaviors, fashion management behaviors and appearance management behaviors. Finally, jobseeking stress exerted a statistically significant positive influence on other orientation, activeness for better appearance, appearance management, appearance concerns, hair management behaviors, makeup behaviors, cosmetic-surgery management behaviors, skincare behaviors, body-shape management behaviors, fashion management behaviors and appearance management behaviors. Given the findings of the study, information on how to build a positive external image and how to take care of one's appearance should be provided to alleviate the job-seeking stress of college students because job-seeking stress affects appearance factors.
