What is the ideal age to stop studying and get a well-paid job ?

A new study has assessed the correlation between duration of studies and professional integration. So what is the ideal age up to which to study to aim for a good job?

With the generations, studies have become longer and longer. Today, a little less than a quarter of the population aged 25 or over has a higher level diploma. ; at least bac +2, according to INSEE data in 2022. Previously, early completion of studies was much more common . Are the new requirements then relevant to the market? of employment ?

The Department of Research Animation, Studies and Statistics of the Ministry of Labor has published a study on March 28 to take stock of the evolution of the age of leaving school ;studies in correlation with its effects on integration into the world of work. It first establishes the observation that people born in 1935, i.e. before the war, left the school system early, they often worked before the age of 17. 40 years later, in 1975, the average age of leaving studies rose again. à 21 years old. The level is &agrav; roughly similar since.

This is explained in particular by the extension of the obligation to go to Paris. school until 16 years in 1959 and by the development of professional and shorter training from the third. born à From the end of the 1970s onwards, the majority went up to the baccalaureate or diploma &equivalent at least (70%).< /p>

Which of these two models then bring the most advantages in terms of professional integration? According to the study, &quot ;an early exit from the school system could bring an advantage to life. short term on integration & a given age, compared to later leavers, due to greater seniority; longest on the market work, but this is not the case. À All ages, people who left the school system early have an employment rate lower than the average. that of people who left later.

Thus, more than half of 17-19 year olds who have stopped students find themselves unemployed or inactive for the following two years, while 75% of people who have completed their studies find themselves unemployed or inactive for the next two years. their curriculum à more than 20 years have found a job in the first two years following their studies, 40% of which are on permanent contracts.

Second criterion which is also è take into account: salary. A real disappearance The salary increase is observable depending on the duration of studies. Employees who are now between 35 and 45 years old are more executives than those who have less education, a status which offers a higher salary . Between 35 and 45 years old, 47.6% of people who completed their initial studies at at least 23 years old are senior managers. Conversely, only 5.7% of those who stopped after the majority started. have this type of position around forty.

Another interesting remark: for those who finished their studies at age 22, the share of executives is twice lower than for those who went up to 23 years or more. Studies up to ' at least 23 years therefore appear, according to the study, to be ideal for achieving such functions and potentially higher income ;s.
