The paper investigates vertical and horizontal mismatch between education and occupation for graduates in four post-communist societies: Hungary, Poland, Lithuania and Slovenia. The analysis reveals significant differences for study fields. Only study-related work experience seems to be advantageous to find a matching job. Labour market uncertainties increase the probability of job mismatch. Job safety is more important than a matching job. Mismatch in first occupation has strong and long-lasting effect on the job match even five years after the graduation.
