Abstract

This study investigated the perception of Nigerian parents in Ekiti state towards the employability of their wards in private tertiary institutions into the public service after graduation. Multi stage sampling technique was used to select the sample of 250 respondents for the study. A self designed questionnaire titled Private Tertiary Institutions and Employment (PTIE) was used as an instrument in gathering the data used for the study. The   face and content validities of the instrument were ensured while the reliability was ascertained at r=87.2, using test re test method. Frequency counts and percentages were used in answering the research question raised while  t- test statistics were used in testing the three  hypotheses formulated.  It was revealed in the study that parents in Ekiti state had negative perceptions towards the employability of their wards into the public services after graduation. It was also revealed that the respondents’ sex, employment type and the respondents educational background did not significantly influence the respondents’ perceptions towards the employability of the  graduates from private  tertiary institutions. Appropriate recommendations were made.

Keywords: Private, Graduates, Employment, Public Service.
