Abstract

The context in which this research is inserted is of particular relevance today in Italy, but not only. We are talking about the path/process to work that graduates must confront to fully enter the professional world. In dealing with this research object, we also intercept what, well before graduation, is the crux of the meeting of supply and demand. In fact, job placement is closely connected to the educational paths that constitute and innervate university preparation as it is also closely related to the relationship between education and the demands of a professional world in constant, continuous and ceaseless change. The first results of this research provide ample opportunities to reflect on the development of learning policies in higher education and contextual perspectives as: 1) Understanding the attitudes of young people towards work; 2) Understanding the cultural flows of labour markets; 3) Interpreting life prospects; 4) Mapping implicit transition strategies; 5) Monitoring young people’s opportunities for choice; 6) Acquiring elements for improving university teaching; 7) Measuring the presence of employability in Italian university culture.
