Abstract

When analyzing the role of young people at the labour market it is crucial to understand the process of transition from school to labour which covers the period from the completion of formal education until employment. Previous studies have shown that young people are particularly affected by unemployment, especially in crises. The aim of the paper is to examine the specific features of the local labour market for the youth and analyze the transition from the world of education to the world of work in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. Data on unemployed and employment ratio obtained from the Croatian Employment Service in the period from 2008 until 2014 were used, as well as statistical analysis of ”survival” in order to examine the determinants of finding employment for young people in Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The research results support the previous research on the importance of the level of education when finding employment. Moreover, young people with work experience find employment faster than those who have just completed their education. In comparison with other parts of the County, there is less likelihood for long-term unemployment of young people within the branch office Dubrovnik area than in other parts of the County. Finally, the results have shown the greater likelihood of women finding employment slightly faster than men.
