This regression study examined the set of graduate characteristics (age, gender, ethnicity), as well as Grade Point Average Motivation, and environmental factors (program of study, use of career services, internship completion, Grade Point Average) that predicted time to in-field employment among associate degree graduates. Graduates ranging from 2010-2012 in business, computers, healthcare, industrial, or service programs at one technical college in the Technical College System of Georgia were surveyed regarding employment status following graduation. Demographic data, as well as environmental data, were collected from the Technical College System of Georgia's Knowledge Management System in order to establish a relationship among variables. A hierarchical multiple regression analysis was used to construct a model of factors that predicted time to in-field employment among associate degree graduates. Analysis results conducted on the entire model were statistically significant, indicating that graduate characteristics, grade point average motivation, and environmental factors predicted time to in-field employment of associate degree graduates.
