Abstract

Following the framework of Brinton and Kariya, and using a nationwide higher education graduates' survey (Graduate School of Education, Peking University in 2003), this article investigates the choices and the effects of institutional embeddedness for higher education graduates in China. Empirical results suggest that institutional embeddedness is more common in the context where employers seek higher-quality labour or where colleges pay attention to their graduates' future employment opportunities. Institutional embeddedness helps graduates find jobs, high-ranking positions and join large enterprises.
