dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the effects of personal, job-related, and college characteristics on the job success of women college graduates employed by a major U.S. manufacturing firm. Job success was defined in terms of performance evaluations, wage growth, and promotion rate models. The relative success of graduates of women's colleges were compared to graduates of coeducational institutions. Ordinary Least Squares analysis was used to evaluate the data. Empirical results indicate that performance evaluations were positively influenced by salary grade, various college majors, and attendance at a women's college. Conversely, the number of women faculty at the college attended adversely affected performance. The results of the promotion rate model show that performance evaluations reduce the time to promo­tion. Finally, the wage growth model illustrated the positive effects that marriage and education have on job success.
