The main purpose of the present study was to construct the university digital employment counseling services scalogram in Taiwan, and further, to propose relevant strategies based on a study of the factorial structure of the scalogram. The literature foundation was built on the exploration of the university digital employment counseling issues, and according to the literature, the factorial structure and items of the preliminary scalogram were formed. The first step of the research method was to confirm the factorial structure and items of preliminary scalogram by focus group, and then to reclassify and to purify the structure and items by exploratory factor analysis. The second step was to collect 817 valid samples from undergraduates in Taiwan for exploratory factor analysis in order to ensure the first and second order latent factors and their measure variables, and then to confirm the factorial structure and to examine the suggested optimal model of the present study—second order factorial model—by confirmatory factor analyses which included overall model fits, item reliability, composite reliability, discriminant validity, and convergent validity. The results indicated that three second order latent factors and six first order latent factors and their measure variables were extracted in the scalogram, and the second order factorial model was stable. Finally, based on the findings, several suggestions were made for educational administrators and policy-makers.
