In recent years, job perception and job attitudes of secondary school teachers in Hung Kong have received research attention. These studies are helpful in understanding the professional behavior of secondary school teachers but they focused mainly on the teaching profession. This study compares the job perception and job attitudes of young graduate teachers with university graduates working in other professions. A sample of 1,461 graduates from the Chinese University of Hung Kong were surveyed. Significant differences in job perception and job attitudes were found among various professions after the differences in salary level, gender composition, tenure and undergraduate major were controlled. Results and implications for these findings are discussed. Copyright © 1996 Hong Kong Educational Research Association.
