Abstract
Today the Information Technology Enabled Service (ITeS) industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, which generates tremendous job opportunities for the people. Some personality factors like Psychological hardiness (Sheard & Golby, 2010) seem to buffer the effect of job stress by promoting effective factors such as commitment, control and challenge. Entrepreneurship plays a vital role in economic and social growth of a society and it becomes the key driver in creating jobs, turning inventions into innovations and improving the standard life of people. Therefore, present study focused on the role of psychological hardiness and its impact on student’s interest in ITeS related entrepreneurship. It was hypothesized that psychological hardiness (commitment, control and challenge) would be positively correlated with student’s interest in ITeS related entrepreneurship. For this purpose, 65 interested students in ITeS related entrepreneurship age group between 18-25 years were selected using convenience sampling. Findings suggest that psychological hardiness and its components i.e. commitment, control and challenge were significantly and positively associated with student’s interest in ITeS related entrepreneurship. Overall findings revealed that the general nature of psychological hardiness and its components helps in predicting entrepreneurial behavior. Thus, the hardiness predicts better performance longitudinally and helps to buffer stress within a pressurized environment.
