Abstract

In recent years, higher education in Taiwan has been growing vigorously, making college education from popular to universal. In view of public concern about issues such as whether college graduates have employability, the study is aimed to identify the employability of graduates from Taiwan higher education, including ability, attitude, and confidence. The study will apply secondary data analysis to analyze the data from questionnaires gathered from Taiwan Higher Education Database, filled in by college graduates and postgraduates one year after they graduated in 2006. Results of the study indicate that in terms of self-acknowledged degree of employability, both college graduates and postgraduates have higher degree of work attitude and lower degree of career planning and confidence, with males’ self-acknowledged degree higher than females’. In terms of academic degree, postgraduates with master degree have higher degree of self-acknowledged employability than graduates with college degree. .
