    Nine standard integration paths were constructed from a sample of 1998 school leavers who had at least one period of employment in the civil service in the three years following 1998. The young women in this cohort found quick entry into the internal civil service market. Conversely, public sector employment more often comes later for the young men. More generally, a larger number of women work a fairly long period in a public sector job, whereas there is a greater probability of the mens paths showing a dominant proportion of short-term contracts in the private sector, youth employment contracts and unemployment. There are more qualified women in the paths with swift integration into the public sector and more qualified men in the paths where the private sector dominates. Yet, independently of this distribution, the young people with periods in the public sector have higher levels of education. Contractual public sector employment does not always lead to an open-ended contract or civil servant status.
