The purpose of this quantitative correlational study was to determine the influence of extrinsic and intrinsic job variables and the effect of demographic/background factors on overall faculty job satisfaction at United States public two-year colleges. TA secondary analysis of data from the 2004 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty was conducted using a three-sample logistic regression of independent job and demographic/background variables and the dependent variable overall job satisfaction. Further analysis of the corresponding correlation matrices was conducted. Extrinsic job variables included satisfaction with salary, benefits, workload, and equipment and facilities. Intrinsic job variables included satisfaction with authority to make decisions, institutional support for teaching improvement, and support to technology initiatives. Demographic/background variables included age, gender, race, marital status, and educational background. Satisfaction with extrinsic factors included significant positive predictors of overall job satisfaction in the three respective statistical samples for salary, benefits, and satisfaction with workload. Satisfaction with intrinsic factors support for teaching improvement and technology-based activities were positive predictors of overall job satisfaction. The results indicated no significant predictors of overall job satisfaction among the demographic/background variables when viewed alone. When included with job factors, age and highest degree attained became significant predictors of overall job satisfaction.
