Employability, Sports Graduates, Graduates’ Perception


Employability enables graduates to grab the organization's opportunities and benefits, making them highly employable. Despite that, poor graduates’ employability is seen as an attractive issue in the organization as they are the asset to determine success. As a consequence of this problem, this study aims to assess the level of employability perceived by Malaysian sports graduates. The quantitative approach using a survey design was used to conduct this study. Questionnaires were distributed to 370 sports graduates employed in public and private organizations. A total of 20 items for employability were assessed using descriptive analysis. Based on the findings, it was reported that the level of employability perceived by the graduates was at a high level. This shows that sports graduates believe they can deliver their knowledge and experience to the working environment. Thus, future researchers recommended conducting the study by looking at the perspective of employers and employees to gain high constructive findings.
