Main results of the research consist of the identification of core components of occupational mobility (axiological, epistemological, praxeological) and pedagogical conditions of formation of University graduates' readiness to occupational mobility (formation of occupational value orientations of students; the modular structure of educational process; organization of project-based learning), identifying of levels of readiness for occupational mobility (high, average, low) and the criteria (motivational, cognitive, activity-related). The significance of the results obtained is that the identified components of occupational mobility allow us to consider it as an integrative quality of the personality of the specialist, which characterizes the readiness for rapid and successful acquisition of new activities. Identified pedagogical conditions of formation of University graduates' readiness for occupational mobility provide their focus on the active acquisition of the latest occupational achievements and expansion of the scope of activities, qualification enhancement and development of competitiveness.
