Spanish Abstract: Se estudia y analiza el matching laboral de las personas adscritas al programa de Medellín solidaria. De esta forma se caracterizó la población de Medellín Solidaria en función de su oferta laboral y se realizaron análisis comparativos con la demanda laboral de la ciudad de Medellín de manera indirecta, teniendo en cuenta escenarios posibles del mercado laboral caracterizados mediante geo-referenciación. Se encontró que la educación técnica y tecnológica es la que presenta los efectos marginales más elevados para esta población y, además que existe niveles de discriminación en contra de las mujeres. Es así como un hombre y una mujer de iguales características e igual nivel de educación al realizar el ejercicio de matching laboral muestra que existe una probabilidad mayor de empleo en favor de los hombres.

We examine labor matching in the context of the program Medellín Solidaria in Medellin, Colombia. Population of Medellín Solidaria was categorized based on their labor supply and it was compared with the labor demand of Medellin City in an indirect manner, using geo-referenced labor market scenarios. We found that technical and technological education, have the highest marginal effects to be employed for population affected by the program, moreover, we found discriminatory levels against women.
