Career Graduates: A Profile of Job Experience and Further Study of Students with AAS Degrees.
To gather information that would aid in planning the development of career curriculums and to stimulate additional research, a study of occupational and vocational experiences of community college graduates was conducted. A completed questionnaire was obtained from 432 (47 percent) of the 925 students identified with this study. Some conclusions were: (1) 53.9 percent took additional education after graduating from a community college, (2) 44.4 percent were attending or had completed a 4-year college program, (3) 69 percent took jobs immediately upon graduation from community colleges, (4) 1.5 percent were unemployed, and (5) The great majority of respondents were employed in job areas directly related to their community college training. Fields of study of graduates were accounting, business, chemical technology, commercial art, construction technology, dental hygiene, dental laboratory technology, electrical technology, graphic arts, hotel technology, marketing, mechanical technology, medical laboratory technology, nursing, and secretarial studies. The apendixes contain a statement of methodology, the questionnaire used, and a copy of the follow-up letter. (DM)
