How to quickly get a job? The transition from higher education to French labour market by a survival model
Abstract:This article analyses how long former university students stay unemployed, when searching for a new job after the leaving of the French higher education. Cox duration models are used to account for the proportional hypothesis. The main result of this article is that the worker's recruitment is based more on the choice of the faculty of initial training than the educational level attainment. Some policy implications are derived from our results to give some recommendations for individual job search and policy-makers in education.
