Abstract:In literature educational mismatching remains an issue of all times because of education costs and the fact that it is impossible to predetermine the (educational) career of individuals. The previous mismatching literature mostly focuses on the over-education aspect of mismatching and in wage-employment only. In attempt to make an addition to the already existing body of knowledge on this matter this research focuses on the differences between self-employment and wage-employment and on differences between over-education and under-education with the use of data from the Labour Supply Panel 2010. The research question of this research is: To what extent does the effect of vertical mismatching on income and job satisfaction differ between people in wage-employment and self-employment? The results of this research indicate that there seem to be no differences between wage- and self-employment looking at the effect of vertical mismatching on income. They however do indicate a difference between the two groups with regards to the effect of vertical mismatching on job satisfaction. It seems that for the wage-employed there certainly are effects of vertical mismatching on job satisfaction whilst the self-employed their job satisfaction seems unaffected by vertical mismatching.
