Chapter Summary

Scholars addressing the well-studied topic of the effects of human capital on career mobility are still unclear about the precise mechanisms through which human capital affects workers' chances for promotions. In response to that shortcoming, the authors use a representative sample of Taiwanese workers and a sophisticated measure of human capital for purposes of modeling career mobility among Taiwanese private sector employees. The results indicates that on-the-job training, first-job managerial experience, firm tenure, and years of over-education exert positive effects on the likelihood of promotion. First-job managerial experience and years of over-education represent workers' start-up advantages in terms of human capital and promotions; whereas on the-job training and firm tenure reflect employer's requirement of firm-specific skills. Finally, the chapter observes a significant gender effect explaining the career mobility of private sector workers, a finding that is consistent with those from prior studies of public sector workers.
