Statistics indicates that roughly 50% of college graduates in Taiwan feel that they are overeducated, or that their jobs do not match their majors. This study investigated whether the feelings of overeducation and mismatch could be mitigated through more education. Using the data of college graduates in 2005 and one year follow-up survey from Taiwan Integrated Postsecondary Database, this study analyzed skill/educational mismatch in terms of the graduates with bachelor's and master' s degrees. The result showed that, as compared with those with bachelor's degrees, graduates with master's degrees have stronger feelings of being overeducated. However, they performed better in finding jobs that suited their majors. Overall, graduates with master's degrees tended to have stronger feelings of educational mismatch than those with bachelor's degrees. College graduates who were overeducated or suffered from skill mismatch tended to have significantly lower earnings. By contrast, for graduates with master's degrees, only those with skill mismatch suffered from significantly lower earnings. The probability of overeducation and skill mismatch in public colleges were the lowest ,while the opposite was the case in both private colleges and public technology colleges.
