Professional Identity, Social Recognition and Entering the Workforce of the University Student with Hybrid Education
Damián, Javier
Journal of Educational Psychology - Propositos y Representaciones, v2 n2 p44-76 Jul-Dec 2014
This article shows progress of a research which aims to describe the factors that facilitate and hinder labor insertion of graduates with hybrid university education, since according to those responsible for the education policy, this type of training facilitates graduates to enter in the labor market. Through a qualitative approach we studied the graduates from the Business Sciences Degree Program from an Oaxaca public university, since it mixes three traditional careers causing a hybrid university program. Preliminary results point out two factors that limit the labor insertion of graduates: the lack of professional identity in the graduates, discouraging them to carry out actions that promote their insertion, and the lack of social recognition of the profession by employers, for which reason graduates are not required in the local labor market; contradicting both situations--at least in the case study--the alleged advantages attributed to hybrid university courses.
