Abstract

This paper discusses the relationship between the GPA, the length of study, and the competency with the length of time to get a first job at the alumni of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMIPA), Sriwijaya University (Unsri). The data source used from the FMIPA Academic Sub Division and the results of a tracer study conducted by the CDC Unsri in graduates from 2013 to 2015. The object of study included 98 alumni. Relationships between categories of variables are expressed in the form of contingency tables. The results of a simple correspondence analysis on the relationship between the 2 variables indicate that only the GPA has a significant relationship with the study period. While, there are no relationship between each GPA, level of education, competence in the field of science, competence outside the field of science, competence in general knowledge, English language competence, and competency in using computers to a long time to get a job. Based on symmetric and asymmetric plots, the trend of relationships between categories of row and column variables can be seen.
