The main contents of this report are as follows: analyzing the impact some institutional regulations such as graduates’ employment dispatch, census register system and employment agreement system on the employment of graduates, testing the theoretical hypothesis that graduates usually overestimate their employment expectation by using some survey data, investigating the demand for graduates’ employability from the angle of enterprise by using the survey inventory designed by researchers in Taiwan, exploring the impact of the demand on employment desirability and behavior, summarizing some experiences from developed countries on how to stimulate graduates to work in areas with harsh conditions but having demand for the graduates.
