This study also embarks on a study of job satisfaction levels. It examines job satisfaction for male and female employees who are former graduates of an undergraduate Liberal Arts college from a number of perspectives. More specifically, the study involves four major questions. First, will the employees from the same graduating cohort express varying job satisfaction levels when viewed from a varying gender perspective? Second, will the women from the same cohort express varying job satisfaction with job advancement and compensation again when looked at from varying gender perspectives? Third, what will be the link between satisfaction with college education obtained and job satisfaction levels for the said group of women? Finally and most importantly, all of this is being done in the context of looking at two college graduate samples – pre the 2008 economic recession and post the 2008 economic recession.
