Abstract
This paper analyzes the social resources embedded in practical teaching and its impact on undergraduate employment, in order to provide guidance for solving the problem of "employment difficulties" caused by the disconnection between classroom teaching and enterprise needs. Firstly, social resources are divided into three categories: human resources, information resources and intellectual resources. Next, a questionnaire survey is conducted among undergraduates in Wuhan, focusing on the embedding of three types of social resources in the three practical teaching patterns as campus practical teaching, social practical teaching and graduation thesis teaching, and their impact on the employment of undergraduates. The results reveal that human resource with the highest degree of embeddedness in social practice and graduation thesis, has the greatest impact on undergraduates' employment, while intellectual resources with the highest degree of embeddedness in campus teaching practice, has the greatest impact on graduates' employment. Therefore, with varying practical teaching patterns, we should attach importance to the cultivation and maintenance of key social resources, so as to enhance its positive role in undergraduate employment.
