The objective of this study was to identify the employability factors which facilitate college students obtaining an apprenticeship position. In the quantitative phase of the research, applicants for apprenticeship in a recruiting company answered a questionnaire and, two months later, at the end of the selection process, we got the names of those who had been selected (or not) (N = 302). In the qualitative phase, a focus group was organized with 10 undergraduates, which clarifi ed their views on employability and corroborated the results of the previous phase. The results show that satisfaction with the educational institution and the course itself were crucial to obtain the apprenticeship position applied for. The factors that infl uenced their satisfaction were: the reputation of the school and the career opportunities offered by the course.
