The Role of Part-Time Employment among Young People with a Non-University Education in Spain
Corrales-Herrero, Helena; Rodríguez-Prado, Beatriz
Journal of Education and Work, v29 n2 p167-198 2016
For some people, a part-time job is merely an intermediate state that serves as a "stepping stone" to further employment and makes labour market integration easier. Yet, part-time work also appears in highly unstable careers. The present research aims to determine the role of part-time employment for young people with non-university studies. Using the Survey on Transition from Education/Training and Labour Market Integration (ETEFIL-2005), we build the monthly sequence of labour states for young people from when they finish their non-university studies until the time of the survey. The analysis allows us to conclude that part-time work is fairly atypical in the early stages of a career but that those who have part-time jobs spend quite a long time in them. In addition, we identify several patterns in the use of part-time work, the "integrative" pattern proving to be the most prevalent. Factors such as education and early preferences are seen to have a major impact on career paths.
