Based on the theory of standardising the academic approach and human capital theory, this study gauged how the respondents from Cebu Technological University-Daanbantayan Campus Graduate School fared in the work arena. It describes the human capital afforded to them by the university, their employment status, the effect of school-related factors on their employment, and the extent of work values and skills’ contribution. The researchers utilized the descriptive research design’s survey method. Using a validated, modified Graduate Tracer Study instrument, the researchers sourced data from 273 respondents. Findings reveal that majority are employed with permanent status that afforded the country a stable fraction of its workforce – majority of whom is impacting the local area’s education industry. Although respondents found that school-related factors moderately affected their employment, the set of work values and skills afforded to them were 'highly contributive'. CTU-Daanbantayan Campus Graduate School has therefore been remarkably instrumental in its graduates and students’ employment.
