Merge Tag to javascript variable not working as expected

  1. I have a form set up with a radio button group for selecting from a list of job functions (Administration, Instruction, Technical / IT).

    Upon form submission a post is created.

    In the post body field I have a javascript with a variable (var JobFunction = {Which of the following best describes your job function?:4};).

    The merge tag is being passed like this:
    var JobFunction = Technical / IT;
    rather than
    var JobFunction = "Technical / IT";

    Is there some way I can pass the merge tag as a string?

    In the script I'm trying to test the variable and use the value to set some other variables like follows:

    if (JobFunction=="Technical / IT"){ do something }

    The problem is that my if statement doesn't work because it doesn't seem to see the variable as a string.
