dc.description.abstractWe use cohort data from 11 European countries to study whether experience profiles differ byeducational attainment. Previous literature does not provide a clear answer to this question, thatis important to evaluate private returns to education over the working life of individuals. We findevidence that employees with tertiary education have steeper experience profiles thanemployees with upper secondary or compulsory education. Hence, education provides not onlyan initial labor market advantage but also a permanent advantage that increases with time in thelabor market. We also find that differences in earnings growth by education are lower incountries with a higher level of corporatism and higher in countries which have experienced bothrelatively fast labor productivity growth and a relatively low educational attainment. Theeducational system also seems to matter, because countries with a more stratified system ofsecondary education have smaller differences in earnings growth by educationen_US
