Abstract

The overall purpose of this research paper is to determine whether Irish graduates’ value intrinsic factors over extrinsic factors when deciding on a place of employment. The sample demographic that this research will be based upon are Irish graduates who have graduated, or will graduate, from the years 2013 to 2019.

This study utilised the Herzberg Two Factor theory, and the research was gathered through quantitative measures. The process also used a questionnaire which was constructed to collate the data, and merged two published surveys into one questionnaire.

It was found that graduates do indeed favour intrinsic factors over extrinsic factors when it comes to choosing a place of employment. With regards to Irish graduates, they prefer career advancement over monetary gain. Additionally, the work itself is favoured over career advancement.
