Abstract

The current study aimed to examine relationships between graduates’ grade point average (GPA), biographical data in their personal resumes and the success in fi nding a job in general and a psychology-based job in particular. Two hundred and six psychology graduates from seven universities in Indonesia participated in a two-wave longitudinal study. First, graduates’ biographical data were assessed:extracurricular activities, computer and foreign language skills, participation in a growth mindset enrichment program and in general enrichment programs (seminar, workshops, and training), and work experiences. Six months later we assessed whether the graduates found a job or not and whether it was a psychology-based job or a job in general. GPA showed a signifi cant relationship with success in fi nding a psychology-based job. Participation in a growth mindset enrichment program was related to the success in fi nding a job in general and in fi nding a psychology-based job. Work experiences predicted the success in fi nding a job in general. Extracurricular activities, foreign language skill, and participation in general enrichment programs showed signifi cant relationships with the success in fi nding a psychology based job. Computer skill did not emerge as determinant of fi nding a job. Practical implications are discussed.
