Summary/Abstract: The difficulties of integrating young graduates affect the Tunisian economy since the early ’90s. These young people that have a higher education have more difficulty in finding employment than their counterparts that have little or no education. As the educational level is no longer a lever to promote access to employment and high wages, the graduates of universities mobilize various types of job search including the social network. This research based on an original survey involving 1125 Tunisian graduates who have the professional masters in economics and management (only the last three series of graduates) allows an analysis of the impact of relational networks on the probability of finding a job, of keeping it or of changing it, if necessary. Through a quantitative empirical study on 1125 young professionals with degrees in Tunisia, we tried to measure key dimensions of employability and key motivating factors for employees to expand it and thus demonstrate to managers and young graduates the main levers to manage it. Our research aims to better describe the areas, the devices used and the roles of actors in the mobilization of social networks to improve the employability of Young Graduates.
