Transition from School to Work in Japan.
Genda, Yuji; Kurosawa, Masako
Using retrospective data of young people's work experience in Japan, a study found that initial labor market conditions (i.e., when workers first enter the labor market after permanently leaving school) have a significant lasting impact on the employment experiences of workers in their teens and twenties. An increase in the unemployment rate at the time of labor market entry reduces the probability of gaining full-time regular employment, and more importantly, increases the future probability of workers to leave employers by lowering the quality of job matches. The study also found that the vocational guidance or recommendations workers received at school could be effective in raising the quality of job matches. The adverse effect of initial unemployment rates on employment opportunities was most pronounced among female college graduates. (Contains 21 references.) (Author/KC)
