Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: 36 p. : ill., graphs, tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : pp. 32 Appendices : pp. 33-36 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The link between academic achievement and labour market outcomes is well established. But how well does a student's achievement in a test predict their later success in life? This study examines this question, with 'success' considered to encompass satisfaction with life together with the extent to which young people are fully occupied with education, employment or a combination of these. Low performers in mathematics in the 2003 Programme for International Student Assessment were the focus. The study found that 'low performing' status has little impact on future success. Further, students who saw the value of mathematics for their future success were more likely to achieve this success.Availability: (1)

Over-skilling and job satisfaction in the Australian labour force /

by Mavromaras, Kostas | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | McGuinness, Seamus | Richardson, Sue.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes references Appendices : p. 45-54 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Finding yourself in a job that does not match your skills or education level can be detrimental in a number of ways. Using data from the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey, this study builds on previous work by looking at the impact of being over-skilled or over-educated or both on an individual's wages as well as their level of job satisfaction. The study distinguishes between 'genuine' mismatch (wages and job satisfaction are both low) and 'apparent' mismatch - where a job may pay less but has been accepted because it has some other redeeming attribute, such as greater flexibility of work hours. The study finds that mismatch is often characterised by both lower wages and job satisfaction.Availability: (1)

Reducing work life conflict : what works? : what doesn t? /

by Higgins, Chris | Duxbury, Linda | Lyons, Sean.

Publisher: [Ottawa, Canada] Health Canada 2008Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://digbig.com/4xbya' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:53:48 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Family & early years Into & out of work INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Researchers have long been interested in understanding the strategies that individuals and families employ to cope with stressful events and circumstances. Although much has been written about coping strategies and processes, there has been a lack of integration among the researchers studying family coping, individual coping and organizational support for coping. As a result, these three fields have developed in relative isolation, despite the obvious overlap in their content. It is the intent of this report to provide a holistic picture of how strategies applied by the key stakeholders in the work life equation the individual, the family and the organization help employees cope with work life conflict. Accordingly, the key objective of this report is to identify coping strategies that are associated with lower levels of the four forms of work life conflict: role overload, work-to-family interference, family-to-work interference and caregiver strain.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Publisher: National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 2013 Includes bibliographic referencesSummary: Many young people start their working lives in low-skill jobs. This report examines whether, for those who have left full-time education, a low-skill job provides them with a good start to their working lives, or whether starting out in a low-skill job can have a ?scarring? effect on the individual. Here we define low-skill jobs using levels 4 and 5 of the skill levels allocated by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to each occupation.Availability: (1)

The incidence and wage effects of overskilling among employed VET graduates /

by Mavromaras, Kostas | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | McGuinness, Seamus | King Fok, Yin.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 31 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: When the skills workers have do not match the skills that jobs require, a number of negative labour market outcomes can occur, including productivity and efficiency losses, lowered earnings and reduced job satisfaction. Using data from the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey, this study examines the degree of job mismatch experienced by workers. The mismatch between the perceived skill level of the worker and the skill level of the job is considered as overskilling. The report finds that workers with vocational qualifications, particularly at the certificate III or IV level, are less likely to experience overskilling.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The paradox of declining female happiness /

by Stevenson, Betsey | Institute for the Study of Labor | Wolfers, Justin.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Other title: IZA Discussion paper ; no. 4200.Summary: By many objective measures the lives of women in the United States have improved over the past 35 years, yet we show that measures of subjective well-being indicate that women s happiness has declined both absolutely and relative to men. The paradox of women s declining relative well-being is found across various datasets, measures of subjective well-being, and is pervasive across demographic groups and industrialized countries. Relative declines in female happiness have eroded a gender gap in happiness in which women in the 1970s typically reported higher subjective well-being than did men. These declines have continued and a new gender gap is emerging - one with higher subjective well-being for men.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The persistence of overskilling and its effects on wages /

by Mavromaras, Kostas | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Mahuteau, St phane | Sloane, Peter | Wei, Zhang.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical references Includes appendicesSummary: Research has shown that overskilling 'where workers are not fully using their skills in their jobs' can lead to reduced wages and job satisfaction. This report builds on that previous research and investigates the persistence of overskilling mismatch and the effect of past mismatch on wages. The research finds that persistence of overskilling mismatch is common among those who have been overskilled in the past and is highest among those who did not finish high school and VET diploma graduates. It was lowest among university graduates. However, the wages of university graduates are significantly reduced by past overskilling, more so than for those in any other education level.Availability: (1)
