Young workers change jobs much more frequently than aged workers do. This behavior, often called "job shopping," can be well understood within the framework of job matching/experimentation process which plays a major role in life-cycle wage growth. My work studies the role of ability and education in this process.
The National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) provides a very detailed work history of each respondent, which allows me to study various interesting topics in labor economics such as job mobility and wage growth.
