Every student wants to do a study that suits his or her interests. In addition, after completing their studies, every student wants to find employment in the sector they studied for. The ISO is of the opinion that study programmes in institutions should ensure a good connection between education and the labour market. A recent graduate should not have to search long for a relevant job. If study programmes and institutions take the labour market into account, if they provide students with sufficient information and guidance with regard to their position in the labour market and if work placements are well organised, such searches can be prevented.
