Economic globalization has created intense competitions and rapid changes among industries. The relatively secured employment system of the past has also suffered from many new uncertainties. These changes further cause problems like unemployment or underemployment. Compared the issues of unemployment and wages, relationship between education and the labor market is relatively underemphasized in Taiwan. However, under the expansion of higher education and the rapid changes among industries, the issue of school-to-work transition will be increasingly more apparent In this study, we take the 1984-1985 birth cohorts as our sample. They are those who have been through the expansion of higher education. In addition, they are also the group currently in the early stage of labor market experience. These characteristics make them appropriate for studying the contemporary matching features between education and work. This paper uses two approaches to analyze the connection between school and work. First, we use the level of education to understand the gap between education and occupational achievement. Second, we use the field of study to discuss the application of what was learned on what one does. This study provides a better understanding as to what the young generation think the school-to-work connection should be, what it is, and how they response to it.
