Job Matching and On-the-Job Training
Conventional analysis predicts that workers pay part of their on-the-job training costs by accepting a lower starting wage and subsequently realize a return to this investment in the form of greater wage growth. Missing from the conventional treatment of on-the-job training is a discussion of the process by which heterogeneous worker s are matched to jobs requiring varying amounts of training. This matching process constitutes a key feature of the on-the-job training model that is presented in this article and tested with a unique dat a set containing extensive information concerning on-the-job training, employer search, wages, and wage and productivity growth.
