Features of career attitude among people with different mental well-being level


We consider the current issue of assessing the mental well-being of persons in a situation of forced unemployment. Since the peculiarities of resolving the situation of job loss are associated with individual characteristics of a person due to the experience of his subjective activity and conscious behavior self-regulation, attention is focused on the attitude of the unemployed to career and life. Based on the identified socio-psychological characteristics of individual age groups, the psychological characteristics of middle-aged unemployed are highlighted, taking into account the signs of a midlife crisis that are characteristic of almost all persons of this age, and the characteristics caused by the employment crisis. The unemployment crisis can act as a negative factor preventing the resolution of the regulatory crisis and aggravating it, especially among the unemployed who have a low level of mental well-being. Despite the theoretical elaboration of the issue of determining the unemployed psychological characteristics, the issue of studying the attitude to the career of the unemployed with different mental well-being levels remains insufficiently disclosed, which determines this study issue. Mental well-being as an existential experience of a person acts as an indicator of the attitude of the unemployed to being, is a combination of positive and negative emotions based on an integrated assessment of being, an indicator of the stability of the unemployed, demonstrating subjective activity aimed at personal and professional growth. We present results of the study of the attitude of the unemployed to a career, consider the factors of attitude to life affecting the mental well-being level.
