Pursuing Benefit or Avoiding Detriment: Term-Time Job Selection of Sports Major Undergraduates
Wu, Huan-Hung; Chen, Shan-Hua
Research in Higher Education Journal, v20 Jun 2013
Higher education expansion accompanied with the tuition rising has resulted in the increasing number of term-time employed students in many countries. Taiwan is no exception to this trend. Thus, there were a few studies to explore the impact of term-time employment on undergraduates. However, very few researchers focus on how undergraduates make the decision of applying term-time work. Analytic hierarchy process is adopted in this study to measure the relative weights of decisive factors of term-time employment choice among sports major undergraduates. A self-developed questionnaire was adopted as the major tool for data collection According to the results, we recommend college administrators and department of sports could consider offering more on-campus working opportunities, build experiences, and finally establish career counseling services to help their students select term jobs.
