- Due to the lack of an appropriate data set, little has been known about the lifetime occupational achievement of female workers in Korea. Using data from the "Survey on Women's Labor Force Participation", this paper examines the pattern of women's lifetime occupational achievement and the factors that explain the variation among women in lifetime occupational achievement. The results show that women in Korea do not experience occupational status growth as they age. While human capital variables have no effect in explaining variation in occupational status growth, employment status of the job one enters in the later life cycle stage has significant' implications for women's lifetime occupational achievement pattern.
