Informal labour markets may be influenced by education and training in employing sectors.  The influence of starting higher education and vocational training may provide skills that are valuable in the workplace in some countries (Scholten & Tieben, 2017).  Scholten and Tieben (2017) compare among non-completed higher education attendance, vocational training, and higher education graduation in performance in labour markets.  Even for those that completed higher education, new training may benefit aging employees in labour markets.  Greenan and Messe (2018) discover that training may mitigate the negative effects of the introduction of new information communication technology tools in employing corporations.
