COVID-19 anxiety is influencing the world’s health and economy. Employees and companies alike are concerned with how to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic which has resulted in a higher rate of unemployment and loss of many jobs. However, the job behaviour appears to be a hard issue for graduate Omani students. Job searchers confront additional challenges, disappointments, and rejection, which can diminish their drive, especially in times of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the impact of COVID-19 anxiety on job search behaviour among new graduate students is an imperative topic. This research is designed in terms of setting up descriptive analysis, as it examines the impact of COVID-19 anxiety and job search behaviour among new graduates of the University of Technology and Applied Sciences, and suggests some recommendations on the basis of the outcome of the survey. Moreover, from the study we found that many of the job seekers’ job search behaviour has had a strong impact due to COVID-19. Finally, our findings contribute to the expanding body of literature supporting the role of personal resources in encouraging job search tenacity.
