This study used a sample of 209 repeat-respondent medical technologists over a 4-year period to investigate correlates of intent to leave one's job. Correlates measured included two job search behaviors (i.e., preparatory and active) and three job search motives (i.e., gain leverage, leave employer, and family related). Results showed that active job search and the leave employer job search motives were each positively related to final intent to leave one's job. The gain leverage job search motive was negatively related to final intent to leave one's job. In addition, job satisfaction was negatively related, while only initial job loss insecurity was positively related, to final intent to leave one's job.
