In addition, the relevance of education is also shown through the opinions of graduate users about graduate user satisfaction, graduate competency and graduate advice to improve graduate competency. As a result, the suitability of the work with the expectation when studying is also a problem of job satisfaction, some feel that they are satisfied with the work that is now being undertaken. The main consideration of alumni in working is not solely because of salary factors is an interesting finding from this study. This can be seen in graduates who are teachers (education sector) with salaries that are still minimal but in accordance with the scientific field. In general, alumni income ranges from one million to three million per month. This is because they work following the district/city minimum wage (UMK) which ranges from Rp. 1,000,000 - Rp. 3,000,000, although many are still under one million rupiah. Some alumni have worked before graduation, although in general, the alumni of 2014-2016 IAIN Purwokerto worked with a waiting period of 3 months. They are mostly in the education sector.
