Abstract

The survey charted the employment situation and job placement of persons who had graduated from the University of Tampere in 2010.

Current employment situation, employment history before and after graduation, and experiences of unemployment after graduation were investigated. The respondents were asked about the nature of their current job and whether the job was commensurate with their qualifications. One topic covered job searching methods used. The respondents were also asked which factors had been the most important in obtaining their current job and which factors may have hindered or prevented them from finding a job. Views were probed on whether they had gained useful skills and abilities (e.g. information seeking skills, social skills, language skills, problem solving skills) from their studies. Plans for further study were also surveyed.

Background variables included the respondent's gender, region, and information on the degree (degree programme, faculty, field of study and time of starting studies).
