Job Satisfaction Characteristics of Selected Associate Degree Graduates. Vocational-Technical Education Research Report.
Gillie, Angelo C., Sr.; Mann, Edward
Summarized is a followup to a larger study concerning job satisfaction characteristics of associate degree graduates of technology programs at Pennsylvania State University. Involving students graduating during the period from 1955 through 1971, the study sought to determine: (1) the present status of the graduates, (2) job information about the graduates since their completion of degree requirements, (3) job orientation characteristics of the graduates, and (4) the need for changes in the existing curriculum. Data were obtained from a questionnaire sent to approximately 33 percent of the graduates. Findings suggest that curriculum planners should give serious consideration to reducing enrollment levels in associate degree technology programs due to low salary levels and high unemployment and promotional rates.
