This chapter discusses the school-to-work transition and early career processes in Ukraine during the reform period. It provides interesting insights about the chances of youths to find work in a country where market and other reforms were delayed or even not yet efficiently implemented. It examines whether and what kind of education resources are used as a recruitment tool and opens the way to high-status and stable employment at labor market entry in Ukraine. The second section of the chapter derives hypotheses about how different educational groups perform at labor market entry in view of institutional change in Ukraine's education systems as well as Ukraine's economic transformation. The third section describes the data, sample selection procedures, and definitions of variables. The fourth section presents the results from the empirical analyses. The last section summarizes the findings.

Keywords:   Ukrainian reform period, labor market entry, Ukrainian education system, economic transformation
