GRADUATES AND EMPLOYABILITY – A QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH AT THE TERTIARY LEVEL
Assessing the graduate’s employability and the professional path became a very important tool for every university that is preoccupated with the professional insertion of its graduates into the labor market. In these circumstances, universities try to find solutions to collect information about the graduate’s opinions about their qualification, competencies, and the way that studying at the university contributed to a good transition from school to the labor market. This research aimed to answer questions such as: What is the professional path of the graduates?; What are the characteristics of the transition from school to the labor market process?; What are the fields/sectors that graduates are employed in?; What are the main positive or negative aspects in assessing the elements that characterize the appreciation of the school's role in integrating into the labor market?; What are the future intentions of graduates regarding their professional goals? By trying to answer these questions, this research revealed a series of conclusions that highlighted that there are no significant differences in appreciating the professional path, referring to employability, entrepreneurship, time of first employment, the type of employment companies, and intentions regarding future employment.
