Summary/Abstract: Based on a comparative research of three age cohorts, the study is dealing with the changing conditions of hiring and labor market success of Hungarian college graduates in Transylvania. It highlights the role of structural effects in the career potential of professionals with different social background, the differences between rural and urban career paths and finally, the changing career plans of the graduates for the future. The analysis is based on interviews and focus group discussions. The results show that the transformations which have taken place in the career habit of the graduates are socially differentiated; the graduate job market is highly segmented in a rural-urban context and, for the future, the willingness to migrate abroad is decreasing.
