Abstract

In a context of economic globalization and increased competition, European countries are increasingly concerned about the consequences of non-enrollment, temporarily or permanently, in the labor market of a growing number of young people, and about the difficulties that university graduates face in finding suitable jobs. In many countries, the transition from school to work represents a central point in the lives of individuals and a key policy topic. In Romania, as in most of Europe, increasing the education period has become a long-term phenomenon. In recent decades, rising unemployment and increasing global competition have emphasized the need to improve the general level of education of the labor force. This paper presents a brief comparative analysis of the youth labor market in Romania and the EU-28 countries and of the dynamics of labour market mobility by analyzing the speed of the transition of young people from school to work.
