Lehmann, Wolfgang – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
As undergraduate degrees have become increasingly common and their relative value has declined, employers increasingly look for evidence other than human capital that can distinguish one candidate from another.

Saxena, Richa; Bhatnagar, Deepti – Journal of Education and Work, 2018

Jenkins, Andrew – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
The importance of people gaining new, and high-level, qualifications in adulthood has been much emphasised in policy rhetoric.

Finn, Kirsty – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
University-to-work transitions tend to be discussed in terms of skills, outcomes and the readiness of graduates for an increasingly insecure and flexible labour market. Such a focus on individual attributes and orientations depicts graduates as lonely and ostensibly rational figures; disembedded from their intimate networks and devoid of emotional…

Petzold, Knut – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
By virtue of the internationalisation of economies, international student mobility is considered increasingly important for professional careers.

Corrales-Herrero, Helena; Rodríguez-Prado, Beatriz – Journal of Education and Work, 2016
For some people, a part-time job is merely an intermediate state that serves as a "stepping stone" to further employment and makes labour market integration easier. Yet, part-time work also appears in highly unstable careers. The present research aims to determine the role of part-time employment for young people with non-university…
