    Abstract

    The ways of entering the world of work vary considerably from one country to the next, even within Europe. Hence the transition from the education system to the world of work is not formalised everywhere in the same way. In France, it is seen as a complex, ongoing process. In Germany, it entails two distinct stages: access to a combined job/training contract followed by access to employment. Although young workers in Europe are in a less enviable professional position than their elders, the extent of this disadvantage fluctuates a great deal from one country to the next. In the twelve countries studied, the frequency of early work experiences before leaving the education system appears to narrow the unemployment risk gap between first jobbers and experienced workers. The opening up of a larger number of economic sectors to first jobbers appears to have the same effect.
