The purpose of this paper is to introduce the special issue on “Employability of higher education graduates in europe” from the perspective of global changes.
The empirically based papers of the special issue address six main areas related to the transition of graduates from education to the labour market: employment and employability, job (mis)match, development of particular areas of competency, new certificates of higher education, along with the disciplinarity and status of the self-perceived role of academics in supporting graduates’ careers.
This issue provides empirical findings relevant to various stakeholders of higher education systems which are essential for strategic development in the area.
The selection of papers proposes an interdisciplinary scientific approach in the areas of bridging (higher) education with the labour market.
The authors wish to thank all participants of the DEHEMS project for enabling framework of the papers in this special issue.
