چکیده

در پژوهش حاضر عوامل مؤثر بر میزان اشتغال پذیری رشته های کشاورزی از دیدگاه دانشجویان سال آخر دانشکده های کشاورزی استانهای غرب کشور در سال 1388بررسی شد. حجم نمونه با استفاده از جدول بارتلت و همکاران (Bartlett & et al., 2001) 274 نفر  تعیین گردید. به منظور تحلیل توصیفی، از میانگین و انحراف معیار و برای تحلیل استنباطی نیز از آزمونهایt  ، تحلیل واریانس و تحلیل مسیر  استفاده شد.
براساس یافته‌ها، میزان اشتغال پذیری رشته های کشاورزی در حد متوسطی ارزیابی گردید. بین میزان اشتغال پذیری دانشجویان گرایشهای مختلف کشاورزی از دیدگاه دانشجویان و میزان وجود مهارتهای آمادگی شغلی، به تفکیک جنسیت و محل تولد، تفاوت معنی داری وجود دارد. نتایج حاصل از تحلیل مسیر نیز نشان داد که میزان وجود مهارتهای آمادگی شغلی، دیدگاه نسبت به دانشکدة محل تحصیل و انتظارات تحصیلی به ترتیب، بیشترین تأثیر را در میزان اشتغال پذیری رشته های کشاورزی از دیدگاه دانشجویان دارند.

This descriptive-correlative research sought to study factors influencing the employability of agricultural students. The statistical population for this study was the senior agricultural students of public universities (Kordestan, Kermanshah, Ilam, Hamedan, and Lorestan) in west of Iran (N=979). 274 students were selected by stratified random sampling (Bartlett table) method. For descriptive analysis, mean and standard deviation and for inferential analysis t tests, variance analysis and path analysis were used.
Based on findings, employability level of students were moderate. There was a significant difference among employability level of students with different agricultural disciplines & employability skills as separated by gender and location of birth. Path analysis revealed that level of employability skills, perception toward educational institutions, and educational expectations are respectively the most important factors that influence on perceived employability level.
