This paper aims to analyze the job satisfaction of recent graduates that have finished their studies at the School of Economic Sciences of the National University of Córdoba (SES-NUC). Firstly, we study the relationship between graduates’ overall job satisfaction and different values of jobs. Secondly they analyze the relationship between each subdomain of job satisfaction and explanatory variables, which are related with individual characteristics, relationship statuses, personality traits, household context, human capital background, occupational context, institutional background, job status and job adequacy. Preliminary outcomes show that fives subdomains are positively associated with the probability of overall job satisfaction; their estimated coefficients are statistically significant. Subdomains are satisfaction with pay, fringe benefits, general work environment, intellectual challenge and the possibility of professional development. Besides, the econometric analysis shows that each subdomains is affected differently by individual characteristics, social and economic context, personality traits, occupational context, job status, among others. This result gives some support in applying the appropriate methodology of splitting overall job satisfaction into different dimensions in order to identify the sources of the values of job satisfaction differences.
