Job performance is an important outcome of effective human resource management. This empirical research surveyed undergraduate students (N=176) majoring in Business Administration to learn more about their job performance propensities. A total of 88 male and 88 female students were surveyed. The results of this research suggest that females have higher citizen-based job performance levels when compared to males, males have higher task-based job performance levels when compared to females, males have higher outcome-based job performance levels when compared to females, and students who have played organized sports have a better understanding of job performance than students who have not played organized sports. Implications and recommendations are offered for practitioners and educators.
