During the Covid-19 pandemic, fresh graduate students had difficulty finding work. This is because several companies have limited the hiring of new employees to minimize company costs during the pandemic. This then can also have an impact on the welfare of fresh graduate students who have not worked, but some students are still able to withstand this situation. The few who were able to withstand this situation had psychological qualities that could make them face difficulties in this time of the pandemic. This study aims to determine the effect of self-compassion on subjective well-being on fresh graduates who have not worked during the Covid-19 pandemic. The research method used is quantitative research methods with correlation techniques. The number of samples in this study were 86 respondents who were selected using purposive sampling technique. The measuring instrument used is the Self-Compassion Scale to measure self-compassion, while to measure subjective well-being, two measuring tools are used, namely the satisfaction with life scale and the Scale of Positive and Negative Experience. The results showed that there was a relationship between self-compassion on subjective well-being and the direction of a positive relationship. The results of the positive relationship between self-compassion and subjective well-being support the findings of previous studies, so that what fresh graduates who have not worked need is to increase self-compassion so that they can maintain high subjective well-being during the Covid-19 pandemic.
