Jeisson Arley Cardenas Rubio

Academic profile

Jeisson Cárdenas-Rubio is a labour economist who joined IER in January 2020. Prior to his PhD studies, he worked as a senior consultant, including for the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the National Administrative Department of Statistics (DANE) and the Ministry of Labour in Colombia, on topics related to skills and occupational change and public policy design. He is currently completing his PhD in Employment Research at the IER. His doctoral research investigated to what extent can a web-based model of skill mismatches be developed for countries where the information regarding the labour market is relatively scarce. Jeisson's current research interests focus on analysing Big Data sources and development of labour market information for career guidance, skill shortages identification and labour market forecasting.
