Abstract
I study the effect of participation in shadow education (private tutoring) in the eleventh grade on the duration of job search for the first job after one's completing education. I find that participation in shadow education increases significantly the probability of exit from job search to employment of high quality which offers a regular staff position and a job that requires qualification above or commensurate with an individual's education level and has been desired by the individual. The effect of participation in shadow education on employment is particularly strong and large for poor academic performers in school. I also find that participation in shadow education in high school increases the educational attainment and the probability of getting better grade in post-secondary education for poor academic performers.
