Graduates in Ivory Coast : modes of access to employment

The object of this article is to analyze the impact of the social networks and institutional intermediaries on the graduates’ insertion in Côte d’Ivoire. Since the economic crisis of the years1980, the insertion of the graduates ceased being systematic and from now on, the access to stable job results from mobilization of social relations. The impact of job search modes on the employment’s quality is estimate by a discrete choice model. It establishes a link between individual characteristics and the job search modes. The results obtained show that women use relations more than men and the most graduates of classic formation occupy unstable employment. The article suggests an improvement of institutional intermediaries’ service in order to reduce the inequality on the job market.
