22 SES 10 A, Higher Education Graduates at the World of Work - the Story Continues (part 2)
Symposium, Continued from 22 SES 09 A
Lives of young people after higher education are running between training and employment, as important aspects in their transition to adulthood. University graduates, who are notably required more training, must adjust their expectations to the labour market reality (Nicolescu and Paun, 2009). On this way, job searching became difficult and problematic (Try, 2005), taking into account also other variables such as gender, education received, social background and social capital (Theodossiu and Zangelidis, 2009; Ianelli and Smyth, 2008; Opheim, 2007; Ollikainen, 2006). This situation is seen as a process that begins mostly at the end or after finishing their studies, with various impacts, ranging from an experience of vulnerability up to the adoption of completely positive attitudes (Tomlinson, 2007; Barbado, Alonso and Castro, 2005). We reflect in this paper on the important role of training for employment on graduates’ pathways from higher education towards labour market. In order to that, we extrapolate voices, opinions and beliefs of degree graduate students of the Faculty of Education at the University of Extremadura (Spain), regarding their formative lacks and needs detected in their training to face their incorporation into the labour market and/or the professional world (Dahlgren and Chiriac,2009).
