Given the recent data on youth unemployment, there is to be happy! Compared to a not so distant past, today worst degrees no longer guarantees a job, although some specialties seem to be much more in demand than others. Indeed, some turn out to be practically useless for working! So even if it’s bad to say, studying does not always pay! In fact, as shown by the latest data from Istat, 3 years after obtaining a degree only 58.2% of neo doctors unable to find work, compared to 72% in 2008. The situation in our country, to date, is more or less stable: the crisis and the consolidation of past reforms have now crystallized the relationship-graduate work in a well-defined framework, although there are surprises. Let us now explain better with the help of some graph.


As you can see, some courses seem to have held up better than others to the economic crisis. I’m speaking specifically of Health Professions. But also the degree course in Medicine would seem a “guarantee” in this sense, even if it is because of the limited number and the duplicity of usability (public and private) that is easier to find a good-paying job at the end of their studies. Instead, as regards Engineering , professionals Popular (and well paid!) on the market are the chemicals, agricultural and computer scientists . The less popular are the management engineers and civil . Again you still can not find a good job (also not necessarily inherent in the qualification acquired) with the only three-year degree.

Other degree programs, however, even if they still in great demand retain their charm! I refer in particular to Law and Economics, which offer numerous employment opportunities in the public and private sectors, although it would seem to be penalized by the absence of a limited number. Even for Architecture seem to increase employment opportunities. Graduates in Psychology, however, seem to be the worst in this category, because the degree should be adding more years for graduate schools. Belong to this block even those degrees do not necessarily “episodic”, the achievement of which often following an intensive post-graduate education which may consist of the Master, internships or achievement qualifications needed for enrollment in professional bodies. The remuneration is generally good.

Finally, let’s see now who holds the “black shirt” between the courses of study that offer job prospects decidedly less favorable. The causes of this can be different: the excessive supply of professionals in the field, the relative weakness of the workplace, the general backwardness of the labor market and so on. In these cases, the insecurity and unpaid internships are the masters !! Although abroad for such courses of study, the situation seems to be better.
