Sažetak
Since we live in a time when an academic degree does not guarantee employment, gymnasium graduates need to make a demanding decision on which study to enrol in order to find a suitable job one day. The purpose of this research was to determine the way high school graduates from Osijek decide on the faculty they want to enrol, which criteria they apply when choosing their future occupation, what information they need for decision-making, and which sources they use to gather information about the future study and employment possibilities. The study also sought to establish how well informed they are about the labour market. The research was conducted using an online questionnaire. The sample comprised of high school graduates (n=264) from four Osijek gymnasiums. Data were analysed by descriptive statistics. Results show that high school graduates primarily chose study according to their interests, however, at the same time two thirds of respondents wished they have had more help with analysis of their traits that predispose them for a particular study and profession. Other criteria that quite affect gymnasium graduates study selection are possibility of getting a good job, possibility of advancement and training, ability to contribute to community development, good study conditions and employment opportunities abroad. Decision-making about future study and profession for the greatest number of respondents was based on information they got from their family, friends, faculty/university sites and students studying chosen study. Family members were the most useful source of information about employment possibilities as well. Results indicate that Osijek gymnasium graduates are somewhat to very informed about the labour market, however 61, 7% of respondents wished they have had more information about the labour market in the process of study decision-making. The results of this study can help to improve human capital planning and management in order to stimulate development of eastern Croatia.
