Various job attributes previously used by Reed and Kratchman (1989) were adopted in order to meet the objectives of this study. Extensive literature on the potential benefits that can be gained from practical training had been reviewed. The other objectives of the study is to examine the perceptions of the male and female students and to determine the perceptions of BACC (Bachelor of Accountancy) students from Part 1 to Part 4 on the importance of various job attributes.
