Abstract

Using a sample of 15,741 graduates from the 2019 Korean Graduates Occupational Mobility National Survey, the study examines the effects of different types of vocational education, job skills-enhancing training and the quality management of university education on graduates employability. The results show that students’ participation in internships and the suitability and usefulness of the university's curriculum have a great impact. Interestingly, volunteer activities had a negative impact on the employability from all types of university and four-year university graduates.
