Occupations of Recent College Graduates.
Metz, A. Stafford; Sietsema, John P.
This report provides data on occupational outcomes (type of occupation, unemployed, and not in the labor force) as of February, 1978, by major field of study for persons who received bachelor's degrees during the July 1, 1976-June 30, 1977, school year. Section 1 presents findings that summarize the occupational outcome data by major field of study. Since certain fields and occupations tend to attract members of one sex more than the other, occupational outcome is examined separately for males and females. Also, since the occupational outcomes of bachelor's recipients who are enrolled and who are not enrolled for an advanced degree may be different, occupational outcome is looked at separately for those enrolled and not enrolled for an advanced degree. The basic data tables presented in section 2 are designed to serve as reference tables for college students and others involved in the process of choosing a major field career. These tables provide profiles of occupation and employment status for the major fields of study covering all bachelor's recipients, men and women, and those enrolled and not enrolled for an advanced degree.
