Abstract:This paper summarizes the findings of a tracer survey of two groups of graduates of the University of Zimbabwe who first enrolled at the university in 1980-1981 and 1985. The main objectives of the survey were to determine: 1) the overall patterns of employment of graduates including the incidence of wage and self-employment and breakdowns by major sector and industry; 2) the broad occupational profiles of graduates from each degree programme mainly in order to ascertain the extent to which their skills and training are being properly utilized; 3) the location of graduates both within Zimbabwe and overseas; 4) annual incomes. The first section of the paper outlines the survey methodology. The second section provides brief background information on the individuals, namely their age, gender composition, socioeconomic status, and 'A'-level examination results. The survey results are presented in the third section. App., bibliogr.
