The transition of recent graduates to the labour market, including the labour market destinations they hold in comparison to their aspirations and plans, seems to be an under researched area. Especially interesting and important for higher education management policy is recognition of their first job destinations and the relevance between the study subject and real occupation.
The article presents results of a survey on how Polish geographers enter the job market. The study compares geographers’ professional qualifications, aspirations and plans about their future job expressed at the time of graduation with the actual fulfilment of those plans six months later. The background for the analysis is a study of the labour market destinations among Polish and international geographers over the last thirty years.
