The objective of this study is to evaluate the job preferences of the students in terms of employability by using İŞKUR data on private sector employment and ILO data on government employment for Turkey. This study is performed in descriptive survey model. The population of the study consists of final year students studying at Anatolian High Schools in provincial center of Uşak, while sampling consists of final year students in 2017-2018 educational year in Anatolian High Schools in provincial center of Uşak. The students have been provided with a ranking scale form in which they were asked to write down their 5 favorite jobs. A total of 305 returned forms have been analyzed. While girl students have opted for the jobs that require ability and specialization as well as some government jobs, boys have preferred government jobs and some jobs with less employability opportunities according to İŞKUR data. The number of jobs preferred by boys that require ability and specialization stayed low.
