Empirical results highlight the sheltering impact of vocational education on early job insecurity. In case VET graduates happen to experience early unemployment and initial fixed-term employment, however, they face long-term career hampering consequences. Further, institutionalised pathways to work along occupational lines constrain occupational mobility for VET graduates. Results indicate that graduates from initial vocational education strongly depend on good job opportunities in their occupational segment of training as they otherwise lack a pathway to qualified employment.
In addition, the last empirical investigation focuses on differential effects of subjective and objective job insecurity on life-satisfaction trajectories across educational categories.
