This study investigates the importance of person‐organization fit to job seekers. The study hypothesizes that as job experience increases, importance of fit will also increase. Further, it hypothesizes that desire for personal control will be positively associated with importance of fit. Results suggest that while number of years of work experience is not related to the importance placed on person‐organization fit, having an experience of perceiving poor fit with an organization does relate to the importance placed on fit in future job searches. Findings also suggest that desire for personal control is positively associated with importance placed on fit. The study suggests that disposition as well as situational factors influence the assessment of organizational attractiveness.
