Manitoba Dept. of Labor and Manpower, Winnipeg.
A survey of the 3,095 students who graduated from the three campuses of Manitoba Community College between August 1977 and July 1978 was conducted in summer 1979 to determine graduates' employment status, earnings, average hours worked per week, education/job relationship, and the location and type of their employment. Major findings, based on a 61.6% response rate, revealed that 88.3% of the graduates were employed, 5.8% were looking for work, and 6.1% were out of the work force (of these, 2.7% were in school). The average weekly wage for graduates was $219.57 and the average of hours worked per week was 38.7. The majority of the employed respondents (82.5%) held jobs related to their training and 88.7% were employed in Manitoba. The largest percentage of graduates (20.4%) were employed in the clerical field, followed by health sciences (18.8%), and manufacturing (12.0%). Community, business, and personal service organizations employed the largest percentage of the respondents (36.6%). The survey report provides analyses of the findings by age, sex, Provincial Entry or Canada Manpower sponsorship, prior educational achievement, and the type of degree or certificate awarded. (JP)
