Abstract [en]

Each year, a substantial amount of students begins studies revolving around staffing and working life at universities and colleges. When graduating, the student moves on with knowledge from an interdisciplinary education and begins the search for an occupation. It is common practice for newly graduated human resources managers to apply for a position at staffing agencies. This makes it relevant to investigate which competence requirements and expectations that staffing agencies in Sweden place on newly graduated human resources managers and what makes them employable.

The purpose of this study is to investigate what knowledge and experience from studying human resources management that considered most relevant in five of Swedens biggest staffing companies.

Since the study deals with an in-depth picture of perceptions about competence requirements, expectations and employability, qualitative interviews were conducted. Data from five interviews with four of Sweden ́s largest staffing agencies and one smaller, is the starting point for the results and analysis of the study. Phenomenological methodology has been used in the analysis to explain the own perceptions and thoughts about the chosen topic among the respondents.

The result indicated that the majority have a positive view of the graduate group of newly graduated human resources managers. Prior to employment, the majority has competence requirements for post-secondary education, but it appeared that four of the staffing agencies make exceptions where relevant industry experience can compensate for a lack of the aforementioned.

The highest-valued traits are social skills. There is also demand for competence in labor law, economics and organizational development. Furthermore, expectations on newly graduated human resources managers are to be cooperative, vigilant, forward, outgoing and have an eagerness to learn.

Internship and student-related work in addition to studies increase employability of the newly graduated human resources manager.
