Abstract: "So far, mobility researchers mainly have explained why workers change occupations by their individual characteristics. But occupations themselves also structure matching processes in the labor market. This paper analyzes the explanatory contribution of occupational characteristics - measured as standardization, licensing and specificity - to horizontal, upward or downward mobility. Against the background of the debate on the 'de-occupationalization' of the labor market, I also examine the change in the influence of these occupational characteristics across four job starter cohorts. With data from the representative dataset 'Working and Learning in a Changing World' (ALWA), I can show that occupational characteristics influence the direction of mobility at least as much as individual factors do. At the same time, there is hardly any change in the influence over time. Consequently, I cannot confirm a decline in the structuring function of occupations as formulated by representatives of the 'de-occupationalization' thesis." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
