Itinéraires de jeunes adultes en formation initiale vers l’insertion professionnelle dans des emplois peu attractifs

Abstract : Nadège et Christine are young adults with a rich and complex biography when they start a vocational training to become food industries technicians. They are located at a transitional period of their life, between initial training and integration into the world of work. Training situations they meet lead to different representations of professional tasks that constitute target employments. During this formation, their professional future become more precise or, on the contrary, more fuzzy and uncertain. This paper deals with the constitution and the maintain of young people engagement in a professional direction that lead to not much attractive employements. We describe the curriculum and analyse its place in and its effects on these young adults life. We present our ethnographic approach to study the process that lead to : a decision of immediat or delayed integration in world of work ; the choice of a professional sector ; the selection of a type of company, employement or fonction. Those process concern lifes fields that not just belong to school or professional fields. They take place in the long period of their whole life (present, past and planed). We adopte a “peripheric participant observation” approach (Adler et Adler, 1987 in Lapassade, 2001) to get round those difficulties
