French PhDs employed in private sector. The signal effect of chaotic pathways

Abstract : This research deals with the question of french PhDs´ career trajectories and especially those that lead to private sector employment. Using longitudinal survey "Generation" from Cereq, which allows to observe professional paths over the first five years of working life, we show that for PhDs graduated in 2010, public-sector research remains the main opening.There are few career paths leading to private sector and PhDs working in firms found their job at a very early stage in their working life. Using data analysis and econometrics methods we find that thesis conditions, professional expectations and cahotic pathways are obstacles to employment in firms.
