An Investigation into the Relationship Between Education and Job Satisfaction in an On-Going Organization.
Vaughn, William J.; Dunn, J. D.
The research on which this paper is based was conducted in a large, modern library which had approximately 107 full-time employees. The sample selected for study consisted of 67 employees, 22 male and 45 female. The original study explored the relationships between six areas of job satisfaction and 55 individual and situational variables defining the work setting of the library. This article isolates the variable of Education in a special analysis which is intended to show whether any connection exists between the independent variable of educational level and the criterion variable of job satisfaction. The findings of this study are inconclusive with regard to the relationship (if any) subsisting between education and job satisfaction. More research is needed to determine whether the equivocacy in the education/satisfaction relationship found in this study is an episodic finding solely or whether it is, in fact, a more universal phenomenon.
