Abstract

This article presents a dynamic utility-maximizing model of career choice between self-employment and employment that takes into consideration the differences among people in terms of their initial attitudes toward job attributes and the likely changes to those attitudes as they mature. These differences between people affect the choice of career that maximizes their utility (there are at least five optimal career paths). This dynamic utility-maximizing model helps increase our understanding not only of why some peoplebecome self-employed but also of why and when some self-employed people switch to employment.
