Abstract

This paper aims to test the relationships between job design aspects and job satisfaction, as well as the mediating role of training effect in these relationships.Regression and mediation analyses were performed based on the data collected from a questionnaire-based survey on the senior accounting students’ audit work placement at audit firms.I conclude that repeated tedious non-professional job aspect is negatively related to job satisfaction, whereas judgmental professional job aspect is positively related to job satisfaction.I also conclude that training effect of work placement is playing a partial mediating role in the identified positive relationship while having no mediation in the negative one.
