Dr. Mbeh Adolf Tanyi


The study sought to evaluate the need for an orientation system and its impact on graduate employability. Specifically, the study aims to investigate the extent to which students' awareness of skilful current career planning and its effect on the employability of graduate students in the faculty of education. Furthermore, the study employed the descriptive survey design. The study population consisted of lecturers and graduate students in the faculty of education at the University of Yaounde 1. A sample size of 10 lecturers and 100 students completed the survey. The sample size was drawn from the faculty of education using a non-probability sampling technique, precisely the purposive sampling technique. A validated and reliable questionnaire for graduate students was used to generate data from the selected students. The instrument was structured according to the research questions. The validity and reliability of the instruments were also ensured. Data collected using a questionnaire was analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. This was done with the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) version 25.0. The findings indicated that the skilful current career planning of graduate students has a strong and positive significant impact on the employability of students. This is when graduate students' skilful career planning is well-tailored and synchronised, and their impact on the job market increases significantly. It was also revealed that good career orientation of students in conceptual skills has a strong and positive significant impact on the effectiveness of graduate students. Furthermore, it was revealed that students' career planning in linking employability to our teaching has a strong and positive significant impact on their employability. Recommendations included that institutions like the University of Yaounde 1 should organise orientation sessions and review the curricula integrating professional skills into the courses. Also, carry out many capacity buildings of lecturers in the domain of career planning to the graduate students
