Project: Research

Description

This is a two-year, longitudinal research project funded by a British Academy Small Grant which will examine the associations between career self-management, employability and employment success during university-to-work transitions. Waves I and II measure career self-management, intentions and job search strategies during the last year of university and immediately upon graduation, respectively; and Wave III examines employment quality (e.g., skill use), attitudes and well-being six months after graduation. The research will contribute to a more detailed understanding of graduate employability and employment success at a time of increasing uncertainty, and have implications for policymakers, employers, universities and graduates.
