The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of different levels of Organizational Identification (OI) and Education variables as moderators on the relationship between Percived External Prestige (PEP) and Organizational Commitment (OC). Study carried out among 206 white collor employees who were working automotive industry firms in Bursa/Turkey. In related literature some researchers displayed that PEP association with OC by moderetor role of Organizational Identification. Thus we accepted this model and investigate the impact of diffrent level of moderator variable(s) on focal predictor .For this purpose, we used best subset regression procedure and simple slope tecniques for identify the different levels effects of moderator variables. The results showed that Education and OI were not only basic moderators but also their different levels have produced remarkable and various impacts on PEP and OC relationship.
