Abstract [sv]

Konjunktursvängningar påverkar dagens arbetsmarknad allt mer. Detta leder till att människor i större utsträckning väljer att byta karriär eller hamnar i arbetslöshet. Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur människor som hamnat i arbetslöshet upplevde omställningen och om deras upplevelse kunde relateras till aktuella teorier som "self-efficacy" och KASAM (känsla av sammanhang). Med omställning menas att individerna genomgått en process som inneburit att de avslutat en anställning och hamnat i arbetslöshet. Syftet var även att undersöka om det fanns någon skillnad i hur individerna hanterade omställningen beroende på om individen blivit avskedad eller frivilligt sagt upp sig. Kvalitativ metod har använt och semistrukturerade intervjuer har genomförts med fyra informanter. Vid dataanalysen användes tematisk analysmetod. Studiens resultat visade att det fanns skillnad i upplevelsen av omställning beroende på om informanten blivit avskedad eller frivilligt sagt upp sig. En skillnad som framkom av resultatet var att de informanter som frivilligt sagt upp sig upplevde omställningen som en möjlighet till förändring och att de hade en större känsla av kontroll i sin situation. En slutsats som drogs var att det egna valet hade betydelse för informanternas välmående

Abstract [en]

The current labor market is affected by cyclical fluctuations. As a consequence people more often change careers or end up in unemployment. The purpose of this study was to investigate how people who were unemployed experienced this transition and if their personal experiences could relate to current theories such as Self-efficacy and SOC (sense of coherence). This transition refers to individuals with a terminated employment ending up in unemployment. Furthermore, the purpose was to investigate if there were any differences in how individuals coped with the transition depending on if they were fired or voluntarily resigned. Qualitative method was used and semi structured interviews were conducted with four informants. When analyzing the data, thematic analysis method was used. Results showed that the informants’ experience of the transition differed depending on if they had been fired or voluntarily resigned. One difference that emerged from the results was that the informants who voluntarily resigned experienced the transition as an opportunity for change; they also had a greater sense of control in their situation. To conclude, the informants’ own choice affected well-being
