- In the context of increasingly fierce competition in the job market, it is difficult for English majors, especially those from private colleges to obtain jobs after graduation. This paper, based on the theory of need analysis, surveys employers’ feedback on English majors from private colleges, to reveal problems in talent training, clarifying the target needs in future working environments, and exploring the training model of English majors in private colleges. The survey adopts the qualitative research of phenomenological study. On the basis of the analysis of the common themes identified, most employers express their dissatisfaction with both graduates’ ability and their attitude towards work. Recommendations in terms of training target, curriculum setting, internship, and assessment are proposed accordingly.
