Abstract:

This dissertation makes three contributions to the empirical returns-to-education literature, each investigating individual decisions and their consequences for labor market success. The decisions of interest are about secondary and tertiary education, occupational choice, and labor market training through internships. The subjects under investigation are young adults at different stages in their life course: in school, shortly before moving from school to work, and in university. Aside from academic gains, this dissertation also delivers relevant insights for policy making. It contributes to designing effective institutional settings in school education, occupational counseling, and labor market training at universities.
