Abstract

This is the first systematic study on the beginning wage of the fresh college graduates in China. Employing a new dataset, this study analyzes the beginning wage in the perspective of university tiers and major specificity. The family background effects on the occupation and wage are also analyzed in different facets such as employer ownership, job-seeking method and mobility rate. Apart from all the above, this study also focuses on China’s unique labor market, as conditioned by China’s household registration system (hukou) and formal post in the public sector (bianzhi).
