Dr. Jeremy Lise, University of Minnesota, will present a seminar at 4:00 PM in Arts 217.

Seminar Title: "Multidimensional Skills, Sorting, and Human Capital Accumulation"

We construct a structural model of on-the-job search in which workers differ in skills along several dimensions (cognitive, manual, interpersonal...) and sort themselves into jobs with heterogeneous skill requirements along those same dimensions. We further allow for skills to be accumulated when used, and eroded away when not used. We estimate the model using occupation-level measures of skill requirements based on O*NET data, combined with a worker-level panel from the NLSY79. We use the estimated model to shed light on the origins and costs of mismatch along the cognitive, manual, and interpersonal skill dimensions.

This seminar is part of the Department of Economics Seminar Series. Everyone is welcome.
