Uses a survey of (British) college graduates from two cohort years (1985 and 1990) to examine determinants of overeducation (mismatch for jobs requiring degrees). Cross-sectional measures of mismatch obscure significant changes for individuals over time. Job satisfaction and earnings are significantly adversely affected by mismatch. (23 references) (MLH)
