How Master's Level Graduates Fare On The Labor Market: 'Objective' and 'Subjective' Measurement

Abstract : This paper investigates the integration of French master's level graduates on the labor market according to social and human capital based on 'objective' and 'subjective' measurement. The objective measurement focuses on the individuals' trajectory on the labor market whereas the subjective measurement is concerned with their opinion on their professional situation. We use data extracted from Cereq's 'Generation 2004' survey on the employment of new graduates with a master's level or higher diploma. Our findings show that when human capital is measured objectively, the better-endowed individuals fare better on the labor market. Conversely, social capital is a discriminating factor when the subjective dimension is considered. We also evidence gender-related disparities.
