Global engagement can impact firm organization and the occupations a firm needs. We examine the effect of globalization on occupational mix using Swedish data covering all firms and a sample of the labor force for 1997–2005. We find a robust relationship, with more globally engaged firms using a mix skewed toward skilled occupations. Moreover, firms have a more skill-intensive distribution when exporting to far away markets, or when exporting differentiated goods. The cross-firm difference in occupational mix and a higher share of skilled workers in higher-wage firms contributed to 19% of overall wage dispersion in 1997 and 26% in 2005.
