Student work and academic performance
Janez Šušteršič, Bojan Nastav, Tanja Kosi, 2011, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: By taking on occasional temporary jobs, students may gain valuable experience that might enhance their future opportunities in the labour market. On the other hand, the preferential tax treatment of their earnings gives them more an incentive to work than to study and therefore to delay their graduation in order to keep the valuable "student status" for as long as possible. This article provides statistical tests of the hypothesis that student work increases drop-outs and thus delays the time to graduation. We use a rich sample of individual-level data, provided by one of the several student employment services and including information on students' time devoted to work, type of their activity and their academic performance in terms of fulfilling all the requirements for regular progression to successive years of study. The results reveal some evidence for this hypothesis, but it is not as clear-cut as expected. Moreover, there is also some evidence that student work does provide valuable experience for some students.

Flexible but segmentes labour markets
Janez Šušteršič, Tanja Kosi, Bojan Nastav, 2011, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The article is the first analysis of student work in Slovenia based on a sample of individual-level data rather than a survey. The first part presents aggregated data on the extent and cost of student work, comparing them to relevant labour market aggregates and considering the competitiveness of students in the labour market. The second part provides statistical tests of the common assumption that working students, due to their preferential tax and regulatory treatment, crowd out some other groups of job seekers from the labour market. It is shown that student work has a statistically significant and quantitatively non-negligible positive impact on the rate of youth unemployment (under the age of 30), especially on the unskilled segment. However, there is no evidence on its impact on the unemployment of young graduates.
