Kittelsen Røberg, Karl Ingar; Helland, Håvard – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
This paper examines the effects of grades from higher education on labour market outcomes. Economic theory predicts that grades are rewarded in the labour market because employers regard them as an expression of valuable skills or a signal of other sought after attributes. Social closure, however, may give reason to expect no effects. Whether good…

Age is here understood as a social construction and ageing as a lifelong process. We will analyse our joint interview…

Liu, Dian – Journal of Education and Work, 2016
In the expanded higher education in China, middle-class students are found to have better access to job information than their underprivileged counterparts; they also gain better jobs in the labour market.

Marzo-Navarro, Mercedes – Journal of Education and Work, 2007
Investments made to improve the educational level of the population are beneficial for the society. Nevertheless, in order to reap a considerable part of these benefits, there must be a fit between the trained human capital and the needs of the labour world. If this does not happen, an entirely undesirable educational gap will occur. This gap can…
