Selected determinants of higher education graduates transition into labour market

The transition of university graduates in the 21st century from the stage of education to employment seems to be one of the most complex and difficult processes taking place at the labour market. The transition paths of people who finish studies in individual countries are mainly an effect of differences in economic level and economy conditions, social and cultural disparities and system differences, including the teaching systems.
The efficiency of this process, apart from demographic and macroeconomic trends is influenced by accumulation of "career capital" especially the ability of transferring skills enquired in higher education into potential and real workplaces, individual and personal features, such as: aspirations, adaptability. The purpose of this paper is to present the determinants influencing the successful transition of graduates into the labor. The empirical research results based on theoretical considerations exemplify the influence of selected determinants, belonging to the group of educational capital, on the pace and nature of the transition to the labor market in the European countries and among the geography graduates in Poland.
