Abstract

Employment is crucial for people’s livelihoods. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to widespread concerns about unemployment among workers. To study the perception of unemployment risk among university graduates and its influencing factors, this research analyzed 307 survey responses from university-educated individuals in Tongzhou District, Beijing, focusing on personal characteristics and job-related factors. The study found that nearly 80% of university graduates expressed concerns about unemployment. Educational attainment, occupation type, nature of the employing organization, and the most significant risk faced during employment significantly influenced the perception of unemployment risk among university-educated individuals. Finally, this study proposes corresponding strategies and suggestions from government, companies, and individuals, aiming to provide insights and assistance in improving the quality of employment.
