Abstract: The current research examined the moderating role of employees' need for cognitive closure in the relationship between their perceived person-job fit and their work-related attitudes. In Study 1, a survey was conducted among 176 Chinese employees from various organizations, and the results confirmed that both demand-ability fit and need-supply fit were positively related to employees' job satisfaction; moreover, these relations were stronger among people with higher need for closure than those scoring lower in need for closure. In Study 2, a survey was conducted among 242 employees from a Chinese city government, and the results replicated the findings of Study 1, but also found that need for closure moderated the relation between demand-ability fit and turnover intention. These results have important mplications for research in organizational psychology and human resource management.
