H1: There is a relationship between education level and job satisfaction. To measure job satisfaction, a questionnaire comprising a slightly modified form of a popular job satisfaction questionnaire was used. The study was conducted on a total of 600 workers, working in 30 four and five stars hotels. All of the questionnaires were picked up because the questionnaires were administered individually by the students of tourism department. 69 percent of the responses were taken from graduated and vocational school students of higher education, 31percent from primary and secondary schools.
