This research project was designed to explore the job attributes that influence the decision to accept or reject a job offer. Job attribute preferences were examined in individuals living in Colombia, Venezuela and the United States. The study used a convenient sampling method that included 101 working adults. The survey was administered anonymously via the internet, and the candidates were asked to answer a researcher developed questionnaire that contained items measuring job security, salary conditions, education, and training. The study was intended to investigate differences between ethnicity and job attribute preferences. The results indicate that there was no significant differences across countries in job attribute preferences. However, employees from different countries did rank their preferences in different ways.
