An Analysis of Job Placement Patterns of Black and Non-Black Male and Female Undergraduates at the University of Virginia and Hampton Institute.
Anderson, Alvin F.
Research questions were proposed to determine the relationship between independent variables (race, sex, and institution attended) and dependent variables (number of job offers received, salary received, and willingness to recommend source of employer contact). The control variables were academic major, grade point average, placement registration, nonemployment activity, employer, and source of employer contact. An analysis of the results revealed no statistical significance of the institution attended as a predictor of job offers or salary, although significant relationships were found between race and sex.
