Abstract


As the structure of the social economy changes, the employment situation has become more serious, the supply of good quality workers has increased rapidly, the problem of undergraduates’ employment has become increasingly obvious and income level has become a core factor in the measurement of the quality of employment. That we do research into, among other factors, undergraduates’ income level after graduation provides more realistic basis. In this text, we use Logistic model to take advantage of estimation techniques to analyze the income level and other factors of undergraduates who have graduated within the last ten years. It indicates that the nature of the job, gender, the frequency of changing jobs and English ability have notable effect on the income level of undergraduates. According to the results of analysis, we put forward relevant recommendations and suggestions from the angle of government, the society employer community, higher education and undergraduates.
