Using a sample from a 1st wave of Graduate Occupational Mobility Survey(GOMS), this study attempts to ascertain determinants of employment status of university graduates youth in labor market. In this article, employment status was measured by two aspects, whether employed or unemployed, and being full-time job at the large corporation or not. The results reveal that variables such as location of university, major, GPA, the level of satisfaction with university providing services, whether setting a concrete career goal before graduating or not, and cost spent in language training abroad have a significant effect on labor market status (employed/unemployed, and being full-time job in large firms/part-time job) in common. Also, age and the household income level in those days of entering university exert an influence on probability of being employed. Likewise, those graduates who are male and have experiences of supplementary private education to be employed are advantageous than female and those who did not.
These findings imply that employment status of university graduates youth is determined by not only individuals' ability but also inborn traits. From these results, the authors suggest that to alleviate the effects of inborn traits, we should make a lot of effort such as providing university students with various and good programs.
