Few researchers have devoted attention to the role of self-directedness in maintaining employability. This study examines the relationship between self-directedness in learning and in career and employability of low-qualified employees. We report the results of a one year follow-up study of 284 low-qualified employees. The results show that the highest chance for a vertical job change is found in those employees who show higher levels of self-directedness in learning and in those employees who show higher levels of self-directedness in their career. The chance of having no turnover intention and no future turnover behavior is found in those employees who show higher levels of self-directedness in their learning and in those employees who show lower levels of self-directedness in their career. No relationship was found between self-directedness and job tenure.
