Candidate survey, Bergen

The objective of the project is to identify labor market adjustment of graduates from the University of Bergen, Bergen University College and Norwegian School of Economics.

The Career Center and educational institutions wishes to find out how the candidates feel in their meeting with the labor market, both for information and guidance purposes. The survey maps the candidates' experience of the job search process, the current situation on the labor market (have they got a relevant job) and education relevant to the job situation. The survey also maps where the candidates work, both geographically and across industries, and also reports to a certain extent in terms of job mobility in the first job.
