Resum: We focus first on the changing nature of skill-job mismatch among post-secondary graduates, using longitudinal data to assess the impact of gender, socioeconomic status, field of study, and other factors, on mismatch. Second, we provide a detailed comparison between college and university graduates to determine whether predictors of mismatch are identical for these two groups. Third, we analyse the exposure of post-secondary graduates to alternative education, such as private vocational schools, and assess the relationship between skill-job mismatch and pursuit of further education. In concluding, we argue that the "school-to-work transition" for post-secondary students is becoming more complex. There is little coordination among post-secondary educational offerings and students' choices are often individualized. In order to address the skill-job mismatch problem, greater coordination between suppliers of conventional and extra-institutional forms of post-secondary education is needed.
