Job opportunities and school-to-work transitions in occupational labour markets: Are occupational change and unskilled employment after vocational education interrelated?


Buchs, Helen; Helbling, Laura Alexandra (2016). Job opportunities and school-to-work transitions in occupational labour markets: Are occupational change and unskilled employment after vocational education interrelated? Empirical Research in Vocational Education and Training, 8(17):1-18.

Abstract

This study links TREE panel data surveying school-to-work transitions in Switzerland with unique job advertising data from the Swiss Job Market Monitor that mirrors individual job opportunities. We investigate: (i) whether occupational change and unskilled entry level employment are two related transition outcomes among graduates from initial vocational education and training (IVET) in the occupational labour market of Switzerland. Our analysis further focuses on (ii) the impact of a low number of occupation-specific job opportunities on the risk of such a combined horizontal and vertical job-education mismatch, and (iii) the extent to which overall labour demand facilitates occupational changes to skilled employment.
