Abstract

The relationship between occupational condition and psychological well-being was examined in a lingitudinal study of 115 young people (58 males; 57 females) belonging to two age groups (aged 17-19 and 22-24 years old). In the first time all interviewees were in search of permanent employment; in the second (conducted 18 months after the first) around one third of the interviewees had found steady jobs. The aim of the study was to examine: a) the subjects' various transitional paths from unemployment to work; b) the incidence of transitional paths on stability and change in the psychological well-being and in the affective attitude towards the future of the young people. The results show an improvement in psychological well-being only among those young people who had found permanent jobs congruent with their expectations.
