Sažetak
Poverty is a far-reaching phenomenon which negatively affects not only financial status but also many other aspects of individual’s life such as education, social capital and, in turn, employment. Based on social exclusion theory (Gallie et al, 2003), poverty imposes major resource constraints on job search and also increases social isolation of unemployed people, leading to labor market marginalization. Empirical findings corroborate these assumptions showing that poor people have smaller chances in obtaining employment. This makes it even harder for them to improve their living conditions as well as to enhance life chances for their children. Such transgenerational transmission of poverty could have the potential to further increase negative effects of poverty, making it even harder for young people who grew up in impoverished conditions to obtain employment. Considering this, it seems important to identify factors that define employability among youth who grew up in poverty. The aim of this study was to identify predictors of perceived employability among young unemployed people who grew up in poverty. We collected self-reported data about educational and work experiences, job searching behavior, proactivity, self-efficacy and perceived employability on a sample of young adults (N = 300) recruited from Croatian families registered as welfare recipients during their children’s high-school education. Regression analysis indicated that better educational and work capacities predicted perceived employability. In addition, individual characteristics (proactivity, self- efficacy) seem to be important mechanism through which these young people enhance their employability. This implied that circumstances in which these young people grew up in made it more difficult for them to increase their employability through more formal ways (education, work experience). The results will be compared with findings in literature on general population of unemployed people.
