Abstract

Los resultados laborales de los universitarios recién graduados son un tema de interés no solo para aquellos individuos considerando las alternativas de inversión en capital humano, sino también para el entendimiento del funcionamiento de los mercados laborales en Colombia y sus regiones. Este documento usa información única sobre los graduados de pregrado en el año 2007 con el objetivo de analizar dos aspectos laborales: la probabilidad de encontrar un empleo formal y los salarios (aproximados por el Ingreso Base de Cotización). Los resultados indican que existen diferencias sustanciales en la probabilidad de encontrar un empleo formal por área del conocimiento y región (que alcanzan los 20 puntos porcentuales), más no así por tipo de universidad y género. Para aquellos en el sector formal, se encuentran diferencias salariales significativas a nivel regional y por área de conocimiento, así como por tipo de universidad y género.
