Les conditions individuelles et collectives des ruptures professionnelles

Abstract : Our survey handles a particular type of individual mobility in France in the period 1980-2000 : occupational ruptures created by a change in occupation and occupational field. Our survey attempts at retracing the contextual and individual rationale of these occupational paths, by transgressing the classical barriers between sociology of work, sociology of the family and sociology of education. Based on about fourty interviews, an analysis in terms of career allows us to show that the occupational ruptures are processes that are unfolding in time : they are the results of a succession of phases shared by the different experiences of the interviewees, which bend their general paths. Besides, it enables the integration of singularities highlighting sex-linked and socially-determined disparities. Such an analysis is finally particularly receptive to variations in time of the ways of being, doing and thinking of individuals according to the different contexts.
