The Inter-Related Dynamics of Dual Job Holding, Human Capital and Occupational Choice
by Georgios A. Panos, Konstantinos Pouliakas, Alexandros Zangelidis
(September 2009)
forthcoming as 'Multiple jobholding, Skill diversification and Mobility' in: Industrial Relations, 2014, 53 (2)

Abstract:
The inter-related dynamics of dual job-holding, human capital and occupational choice between primary and secondary jobs are investigated, using a panel sample (1991-2005) of UK employees from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS). A sequential profile of the working lives of employees is examined, investigating, first, the determinants of multiple job-holding, second, the factors affecting the occupational choice of a secondary job, third, the relationship between multiple-job holding and job mobility and, lastly, the spillover effects of multiple job-holding on occupational mobility between primary jobs. The evidence indicates that dual job-holding may facilitate job transition, as it may act as a stepping-stone towards new primary jobs, particularly self-employment.
