Not just a job Preparing graduates for careers in the IS workforce

Not just a job Preparing graduates for careers in the IS workforce If IS educators are to provide their students with an understanding of the overall context in which they will develop professional careers, they must have good information about graduates employment destinations and their workforce experiences. That information is difficult to obtain from standard data collections. This paper explores the early job experiences of IS graduates using survey and interview data. While the graduates have a strong IS professional orientation and experience friendly work environments, their expectations of access to interesting work, career advice and opportunities for advancement appear to outstrip their experience in the workplace. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Systems and Information Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

If IS educators are to provide their students with an understanding of the overall context in which they will develop professional careers, they must have good information about graduates employment destinations and their workforce experiences. That information is difficult to obtain from standard data collections. This paper explores the early job experiences of IS graduates using survey and interview data. While the graduates have a strong IS professional orientation and experience friendly work environments, their expectations of access to interesting work, career advice and opportunities for advancement appear to outstrip their experience in the workplace.
