Making the Transition

This chapter examines the timing of entering working life and the position of the first job over a period of forty years (1966 to 2005). It looks at twenty-five years of socialism and another fifteen years of Russia's transformation process. It begins with a discussion on the features of the Soviet and post-Soviet education and employment systems and their impacts on the transition from school to work. After documenting the data and variables used in the empirical analyses, the discussion reports estimates from multivariate analyses and attempts to characterize the process of entering working life in Russia between 1966 and 2005. Russia's education and employment system has been subject to contradictory forces of change and continuity. However, the typical paths from particular educational degrees into particular occupational positions remained essentially unchanged.

Keywords:   socialism, Russian transformation, Soviet education systems, Soviet employment systems
