The labour market experience of graduates and diplomates is asubject currently being explored in the United Kingdom. Reports on thefindings of a study undertaken in Northern Ireland with specialreference to the hospitality industry. Examines graduate and diplomateopinions on the preparatory value of hospitality management courses andtheir perception of job quality. Found that graduates in particular feeloverqualified because of a lack of opportunity to implement theirknowledge and skills acquired and developed in higher education. Part ofthe problem appears to lie with the conflicting expectations ofgraduates and employers in the hospitality industry and argues that thiscould be overcome by forging greater links between the educators andemployers. As one of the major challenges of the 1990s is the recruitingand retaining of graduates, hospitality employers must offer trainingwhich builds on the foundation laid in higher education.
