Looking for a job when you’ve just been a doctor: adjustments between work project, transition to adult life and future-proof labour market representations




After presenting the main results of statistical surveys on the future of doctoral graduates, the article proposes to address how young doctors are looking for a job in terms of the lifecycle and through an understandable and longitudinal approach. Thanks to the double series of biographical interviews conducted with two different groups of disciplinary specialities, it was possible to report on the adjustments made by these young doctors in their job-search strategy during the 18 months following their support. The results show that job search turns out to be a social process in which young doctors adjust their professional project, their family transition to adult life and their representations towards the labour market, as their career and life path progresses.
