The purpose of this research is to analyse the influence of Green Human Resource Management (GHRM) practices on undergraduate Business field students’ intention in pursuing jobs that adopt such practices. These are Green Job Positions and Descriptions (GJPD), Green Recruitment and Selection (GRS), Green Training and Development (GTD), Green Performance Management (GPM), Green Pay and Rewards (GPR), and Green Employee Relations (GER). Two mediators; Employers’ Attractiveness (EA) and Employers’ Prestige (EP) are tested on the aforementioned relationships. The research addresses the Signalling theory by Michael Spence and Social Identity theory by Henri Tajfel as a foundation. The AMO theory propounds explanations on the dimensions of GHRM. Prior conceptual and empirical studies are illuminated. A quantitative approach is employed and the unit of analysis comprises Business fields undergraduate students from the private Higher Education Institutions in Malaysia. Questionnaires are disseminated via Google Form and a total of 216 responses are collected. SPSS and SmartPLS are utilised for analysis. The study presented frequency, mean and standard deviation analyses, multivariate normality, and common method bias. The measurement model (loadings, composite reliability, convergent validity, and discriminant validity) and structural model (collinearity (VIF), R2 value, Q2 value, PLS Predict and bootstrapping outcomes (direct and indirect effects)) are depicted. Despite none of the direct relationships between the independent variables and dependent variable are supported, some of the direct effects between the independent variables and mediators are supported, and also the direct effects between the mediators and dependent variables are supported. This presents the importance of the mediators as EA mediates the relationship between GPM, GER on JPI. Moreover, the results showed that EP mediates the relationship between GRS, GER on JPI. The study provided theoretical and practical implications and suggestions for future studies. This empirical study advances the body of literature in GHRM which is at its nascent stage. These findings can encourage practitioners to invest in developing green abilities such as GRS, motivating green employees such as GPM and lastly, providing green opportunities such as GER which can enrich the organisations’ attractiveness and prestige level and consequently lead to the applicants’ JPI in such organisations.
