Abstract:

Building, managing, and retaining a talented and sufficient number of cyber employees has been a challenge within the Federal Government. This research investigates the relationships between cognitive ability, cyber knowledge, job-fit, and normative commitment to predict Army career intentions in two cyber occupations. Findings show that individuals with lower cyber knowledge at the beginning of training report higher Army career intentions at the end of training when their job-fit was high versus when it was low. For individuals high in cyber knowledgepotential, Army career intentions remained the same regardless of the degree of job-fit reported. Implications are discussed. Includes PowerPoint poster presentation 1 slide. Presented at 2016 SIOP Conference in Anaheim, California, April 14-16, 2016.
