 Job satisfaction describes how contentedan individual is with his or her job.It has been defined as a pleasurableemotional state resulting from the appraisalof one’s job; an affective reaction to one’sob; and an attitude towards one’s job.

Models of Job Satisfaction
Affect Theory
 The main premise of this theory is that satisfactionis determined by a discrepancy that how much onevalues a given facet of work (e.g. the degree of autonomyin a position) moderates how satisfied/dissatisfied onebecomes when expectations are/aren’t met. When aperson values a particular facet of a job, his satisfactionis more greatly impacted both positively (whenexpectations are met) and negatively (when expectationsare not met), compared to one who doesn’t value thatfacet.
