[en] Transition from study to work is considered as the end of youth. How doyoung people prepare to enter the labour market? What are the strategies youngpeople utilise to become employed if it occurs in another country, as in the case ofemployment mobility? To answer these questions, the proposed article focuses on howyoung people move and enter the employment in other destination countries.Alongside with the literature on youth and transition we also observe that youngpeople equally experience challenges of matching their skills in the destinationcountries. They relate to inequalities on the job market depending on their skills, theirqualifications, the type of jobs, their working experiences, etc. The discussions in thispaper thus first touch upon the topic of inequality with regard to the process ofrecruitment and becoming employed. Second, they draw attention to the inferiorpositioning that young people are prepared to put themselves into when entering thelabour market for the first time and emphasise the fact that young people oftenexperience discrimination and unequal treatment when they complete education andapply for jobs, on the grounds of being young and inexperienced. As a result, such apositioning often puts young people in a vulnerable situation, which they accept andendure as long as they are promised work. Furthermore, by focusing on how youngpeople enter the labour market in the receiving country, the paper also exploresstrategies that young people apply for being employed, becoming integrated in thelabour market, overcoming inequalities in employment and finding ways to cope withthese challenges in the labour market, as well as their own social lives in thedestination country
