In November we published the article "Life-Course Differences in Occupational Mobility Between Vocationally and Generally Trained Workers in Germany" in Sociological Science. It is joint work of Viktor, Thijs, and Hanno Kruse. In the study, we assess whether and to what extent occupational mobility differs between workers with a general education and those with vocational training and examine how these differences develop over workers’ life courses. You can download the full paper above or head to the Sociological Science website and make use of their open-access policy.
