In order to deepen the theoretical reflection about precariousness, this paper collects results from both previous researches and new surveys. This paper aims to focus on how the difficulties of young graduates in Education experience in gaining autonomy, have changed from a temporary transition phase to a structural condition. Collected data show a strong gender and social segregation, related to discontinuous, poor and low qualified jobs in tertiary sector. For these youngsters, university education becomes a 'precariousness factory', characterised by discrepant job positions, high irregularity and fragmented job experiences. Finally, the risks of having modest occupational positions, receiving low and discontinuous remuneration relate to significant consequences in the process of biographical construction, characterized by the indeterminacy of sense of self.
