This research connects job search behaviors and relocation willingness among a group of unemployed individuals. We carried out a survey on 301 unemployed individuals from Sicily (a south Italy island with an high rate of unenployment), using career decision self-efficacy as a predictor. Our results, consistent to most of our hypotheses, show how self-efficacy predicts either job search intensity and relocation willingness. Age, level of education and period of unemployment play a significant role as well. In conclusion we discuss theoretical and practical implications, about programs of vocational guidance and support to career transitions.
