Aim: This study is aimed at investigating the role of employment in the relation between existential crisis and life expectancy of the students at Allameh Tabataba’i University. Methodology: This study is of description – correlation nature. The statistical population is composed of two groups of employed and unemployed boys and girls who are master’s degree candidates at this university. The research sample comprises 200 subjects including 118 girls and 92 boys selected using convenience sampling method. In order to gather the data, life expectancy questionnaire (Simpson) and existential crisis questionnaire (Ahmadi and Dastgheib) were adopted. In order to analyze the data, Pearson correlation test was also employed for identifying the relation between the variables and Z-test was administered for demonstrating the intermediary role of gender. Results of Pearson correlation test suggest that there is a significant relation between existential crisis and life expectancy of boys and girls (sig. p<0.01). Results of Z-test indicate that people’s gender has no effect on the relation between their existential crises, life expectancies and attitude towards job but is effective in employment status. Conclusion: There is a significant relation between people’s existential crisis and life expectancy – the factors which influence people’s employment and unemployment.
