Abstract

This paper studies the influencing factors on the degree of change in college students’ career choices in the post-epidemic era by constructing a multiple regression model. We find that most colleges have changed their career choices; the factors of the epidemic, government decisions, college behaviours, personal differences, and families are critical in affecting changes in colleges’ career choices. We also establish a conditional logit model to analyse college students’ occupational preferences and the key factors of employment in the post-epidemic era, and the following conclusions are obtained: colleges tend to choose stable jobs such as continuing study to obtain a master’s degree or applying for public-sector jobs; colleges also tend to choose careers that are less affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
