Taking a self-empowerment perspective, we investigated the mediating impact of psychological empowerment on the relationship between expansion-oriented job crafting behaviors (seeking resources and seeking chal lenges) and job performance. We also examined the moderating role of perceived overqualification on the proposed mediation model. Data were collected from 519 employees and their direct supervisors who work in 69 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Turkey. As the data had a nested structure, we used hierarchical linear modeling (HLM) to analyze the multi-level data. The results show that psychological empowerment me diates the relationship between expansion-oriented job crafting behaviors and job performance. The analyses also provide support for the moderating impact of perceived overqualification. The conditional indirect effect of seeking challenges on job performance is stronger for those employees who feel overqualified for their jobs.
