Career Placement. Review of Research: Part II.
Guay, Roland B.
This document contains a compendium of research on the job placement of college students and graduates. The objectives of this publication are to help individuals involved in job placement learn the research findings in the field and to provide guidance to researchers in the field regarding areas needing additional study. The introduction explains the organization of this publication and is followed by: (1) an outline of the job placement topics covered by this summary of research; (2) an index that lists topics from the outline; (3) an overall summary of the findings reported in the research abstracts; and (4) a brief discussion of areas in the field that appear to need additional research. The majority of this publication consists of 99 one-page research abstracts arranged alphabetically by author. Each abstract summarizes a different study conducted in the field. For each abstract, the title of the study, the author, and the publication source are listed. The remainder of the abstract briefly summarizes the problem, methodology, and major results of the study. The studies abstracted in this publication were conducted to either identify employer preferences regarding the application process and materials; examine the effectiveness of job-acquisition training; investigate the nature and importance of job-seeking behaviors; or determine the influence of various factors on the evaluation of college-educated job applicants. While studies published through April 1983 are included in this review, plans to periodically update this publication are discussed. (NB)
