Inputs were taken from the sample undergraduate students from different institutions within the state of Meghalaya, India. Majority of sample units of the students belonged to the Khasi, Garo, and Jaintia ethnic tribal groups in Meghalaya. Altogether 410 undergraduate students were included in the study through random (lottery) method drawn from altogether 56 colleges from the disciplines of Arts, Commerce and Science. The study was conducted upon the final year undergraduate students to assess the path taken for their career choice.
