McDonald, Paula – Journal of Education and Work, 2020
Participation in open market internships by higher education students and graduates has significantly expanded.

Graham, Lauren; Williams, Leilanie; Chisoro, Charity – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Graduate unemployment has increasingly been the topic of research interest as it grows in many countries. In many such contexts, the massification of higher education and the global economic recession of the late 2000s explain the challenge. The situation differs in South Africa.

Groleau, Amélie; Smith, Michael R. – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Previous research has documented substantial overqualification and an association with social disadvantage and fields of study. Overqualification persistence has been less studied. Persistence is more important than prevalence because skill and job matches are likely to involve lags. Our data set allows us to estimate the prevalence, the…

Blackmore, Jill; Rahimi, Mark – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Very few organisations, even local firms, are insulated from global economic activity or the social and cultural consequences of widespread global migration programs such as international education. Nonetheless, established recruitment processes remain stubbornly local, privileging candidates who conform to the criterion of 'people like us' to…

Nordlund, Madelene – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
Based on Swedish register data from 2003 to 2012, this study attempts to explain over-education and upward mobility among tertiary graduates. Rarely used explanatory factors are central in the analyses, such as 'still in study' and 'field of education'. Tertiary graduates in low-wage jobs are regarded as over-educated. The results of this work…

Orupabo, Julia – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
A key insight from studies of gender segregation is that the allocation of different groups to different positions in the labour market is strongly related to ascribed status. Shared gendered cultural beliefs generally portray men as more competent and of a higher status than women, and position some workers as more suited than others to perform…

Drawing on the French approach of societal analysis, this paper investigates how country-specific school-to-work transition…
