This longitudinal study explored the relative strength of job satisfaction, components of organizational commitment, dimensions of job embeddedness and person- organization fit as predictors of voluntary turnover at the U.S. Air Force Academy. Using survey data from 643 first- and second-year cadets, we found that job satisfaction, affective commitment, on-the-job embeddedness, and person- organization fit were significantly negatively related to turnover. Based on relative weights analysis, we found the most powerful predictor of cadet turnover was person- organization fit, which has important implications for military leaders.
