To help Qatar identify priorities for developing post-secondary educational offerings, this report presents the results of a survey of Qataris who left secondary school in 1998 concerning their education and employment experiences since graduation. Most sample members worked in a government ministry or for an establishment owned by the government. The survey showed sharp gender differences. For example, majors in education and the humanities were pursued exclusively by women. And, although more women than men had completed university training, fewer women were employed. Both male and female respondents felt that being made to feel respected and appreciated was the most important feature of a job. This knowledge could help policymakers develop policies to foster greater willingness to work in the private sector.
