ROBERTI, Eugenia. (UN) Focused senses of work: Towards a reconstruction of usual itineraries outlined by poor youth. Ultima décad. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.44, pp.227-255. ISSN 0718-2236.

The article deals with the constitution of the career paths of young men from suburbs. From a theoretical-methodological perspective, these paths are conceived as a crossing point between structural and biographical aspects, understanding that the linear transition processes of young people have been fractured and need to be analyzed by critical points of view regarding a multiplicity of life fields. That is why this research is concerned about interdependence of multiple factors shaping youth paths: education, family, neighborhood and peers. A typology has been developed, showing up, based on an empirical analysis, as a prominent finding to elucidate the paths followed by young individuals from a same socio-cultural environment in order to configure subjectivities and draw divergent paths.

Keywords : youth condition; life and career paths; typology.
