This article examines the relationship between higher education and professional occupation, based on data from the 2000 Demographic Census (IBGE), stressing occupations related to regulated professions. A large gap is seen between having a formal diploma and the real occupation of graduates. It considers that noncorrespondence between education and occupation is due mainly to the educational model, historically tied to regulated professions, which no longer meets the reality of Brazilian society.
Keywords : Higher education; job market; occupation in the job market.
