The purpose of the survey was to chart the employment situation of people who had graduated from the University of Tampere in 1998. There were questions about the respondents' current employment, months of working in general, months of working in jobs corresponding to their degree, and number of months the respondents had been unemployed before their first job after graduation. The respondents were also asked whether they had worked under the course of their studies in an area related with their field of studies. Those currently working were asked about the field of activities of the current employer, and whether the demands of the present job were commensurate with the university degree. Moreover, the respondents were asked about the most important job seeking channels, factors which affected getting a job, and what kinds of properties are valued by employers. The respondents who had sought jobs after graduation were asked what job seeking methods they had used, and what factors had impeded or rendered finding a job difficult in their minds.

Background variables included the respondent's gender, region, and field of study.
