Sažetak
Although in recent years the overall number of registered unemployment in Croatia is decreasing, the share of unemployed university graduates is increasing. Therefore, gymnasium graduates today are faced with the challenging decision of choosing study that will enable them to find employment. Although efforts have been made to adjust higher education enrolment quotas to the needs of the labour market, Croatia still has a below average ratio of students in natural sciences studies and biomedicine and health, and above average ratio of social sciences students compared to European Union. With this in mind, the aim of the research is to examine the differences/relationship regarding (1) type of searched information about employment possibilities after graduation, (2) the choice of information sources on employment possibilities after graduation, (3) the importance of different criteria relating to employment possibilities after graduation when choosing the study, (4) the information needs when choosing the study and (5) the usefulness of sources of information about employment possibilities after graduation with respect to the scientific field of the chosen study. The survey was conducted using an online questionnaire on a sample of Osijek gymnasium graduates (n = 264), and the data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The statistically significant differences were determined in (1) the type of required information regarding employment possibilities after graduation, (3) the criteria for the selection of the study, and (5) the usefulness of sources of information regarding employment possibilities after graduation. No statistically significant relationship was determined between the (2) selection of sources about employment possibilities, except for one source, nor regarding (4) information needs and the scientific field of the chosen study. The results of this study can help in professional orientation of future undergraduate students both in formal and informal sense in order to stimulate development of eastern Croatia.
