Investigating the career of the graduates of the University of Ioannina (Master thesis)

Καλαμάρη, Στεφανία

Higher education is an important milestone in people’s life. Within undergraduate studies, it provides people with knowledge and skills capable of influencing their subsequent academic and professional paths and defining their course. The purpose of the present research is the tracking and analysis of graduates’ academic and professional paths. Four hundred and thirty one graduates from all the departments of the University of Ioannina participated in the study, except for the graduates of Medicine. The participants answered a structured questionnaire through telephone interviewing which was conducted by myself, as I had the role of the interviewer. The questionnaire aimed at collecting data about themselves, their family, their appraisal of their undergraduate studies at University of Ioannina and the link of undergraduate studies with academia and the workplace. Data was collected about the academic and professional background, such as the participation in postgraduate or doctoral studies, the participation in second undergraduate studies, the current employment status, the significant employment experience, the qualitative characteristics of employment (full-time employment, the relevance of employment with the object of undergraduate studies, the employees’ remuneration), the characteristics of the unemployed and the economically inactive, and the preferences of the ideal employment. The results confirm the participation of graduates in postgraduate and doctoral programs, mainly in Greek universities, aiming at professional rehabilitation and development. In addition, the graduates’ transition to the labor market is associated with a high employment rate, mainly in positions of employees in the private sector and selfemployed without staff, while the levels of heteroemployment seem to be high. Unemployed graduates abstain from employment due to the lack of jobs on their specialty, economically inactive graduates abstain from searching for job due to their participation in postgraduate and doctoral programs, whereas a position in the public sector is defined as the desirable employment.
