We use a comprehensive and representative national level survey of Russian university graduates. The study employs a self-evaluated measure of mismatch and a statistical variant for robustness and interpretation purposes. We find that one third of graduates in Russia are horizontally mismatched. Moreover, graduates from fields that generate more general human capital or where low pay is common are more likely to be mismatched. On the contrary, graduates in Medicine, a field which generates more specific human capital, are more likely to be matched. We find that mismatches negatively affect the earnings of university graduates and the higher is the degree of mismatch, the higher is the penalty for the mismatch. The study depicts that mismatch is penalized in the majority of fields except for low-paid ones.”
