Abstract

The rationale for carrying out this research project lies in the findings of a survey regarding the mismatch between the qualifications and the demand for employment in the job market in Sri Lanka. This study aims to identify the degree of employability of graduates in the public and private sector higher education institutes which offer Management Degree programmes. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods has been applied to elicit data. Primary data was collected through a questionnaire survey and interviews with 121 selected graduates who had graduated from two selected education institutes to extract views and experiences of graduates who use Facebook and those who use Google+ sites by applying the ‘Snowball sampling’ method of sampling. The findings suggest that both institutes have paid attention in developing employability skills in their students, supported developing enterprise skills and interpersonal skills which were seen inadequate to fulfil the requirements of the job market.
