Kim, Jeongeun; Kim, Jiyun; Jaquette, Ozan; Bastedo, Michael N.
Journal of Higher Education, v85 n6 p761-791 Nov-Dec 2014
Employing NCES databases, we investigate how college selectivity influences job satisfaction and prestige from the 1970s to the 1990s and across different racial categories. We find that the effect of college selectivity has essentially disappeared over time and that minority students are particularly disadvantaged with respect to job satisfaction.
