Employment stability is positively correlated with job experience,vocational training, qualifications, and majors. Job satisfaction is positivelyinfluenced by job experience, foreign language, and majors.The results suggest that the government is pushing for a step-by-step andsystematic approach to the transition to the job-oriented labor market, and thatindividual job seekers need to strategically prepare for employment by the jobcompensation they consider important.
