Heterogeneity of Educational Degrees and Labor Market Entry in Poland

(p.216) Chapter Nine Does Horizontal Differentiation Make Any Difference?
Making the Transition

Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses the influence of level and type of education on the labor market outcomes of graduates in Poland. It focuses on variation of youth labor market outcomes corresponding to different educational programs and shows the role of fields of study in the labor market integration of young people. It provides new evidence related to the influence of fields of study on job search duration and job tenure within a dynamic analytical framework and explores whether demanding technical fields indeed provide higher labor market returns. The discussion first surveys the theoretical underpinnings of the links between the type of secondary and tertiary education for subsequent labor market outcomes. Then, it presents and analyzes the results of the study.

Keywords:   youth labor market, Poland educational program, labor market integration, job search duration, job tenure
