Will I Get a Job after Graduation?

Jin Kuan Kok and Jiunn Han Tan

Abstract—The role of the university in helping students to meet the employment needs has been taken into scrutiny in the present study. Cross-sectional design survey approach was used to examine students’ perception on this critical question. Participants included 482 university students from several states of Malaysia. The findings showed that generally students had a positive perception towards the roles of university and most of them were satisfied with the positive learning experience at their respective universities and hence, they were confident in securing a job after completion of education. Although the outcomes obtained from this findings were positive, several reflective and important questions were raised and discussed against the backdrop of Malaysian context. Suggestions for further studies were given.
