Description

Searching for purposeful work (SPW), a component of calling, is influenced by planned or unplanned critical life events (Duffy & Dik, 2009) including global service learning (GSL) or campus shootings. We conceptualized SPW as a form of posttraumatic growth (PTG) applied to vocation. We examined SPW trajectories following GSL and a campus shooting. Participants (female, 87.8%, Caucasian, 75.7%) were GSL students who completed a calling questionnaire over 5 waves. Data were analyzed using hierarchical linear modeling (HLM). Students not exposed to the shooting increased SPW across the re-entry interval of 12 months; individuals with exposure did not change in SPW.
