Learning Processes and Professional Expectations

Samantha Hacard-Verpoort and J. Tiago Sousa

Abstract—Many of values, knowledge, and forms of identification of the social actors, can be redefined and changed, causing often ruptures with the school learning, because the transition school-work highlights the relationship between the ideal model that represents the social dignity of a profession, his trademark, the symbolic value and the practical model that defining the tasks of everyday life at operational work, which hardly correspond to the creation of the work and tends to accentuate or fade, as a result of both contexts, education and work, because there are contexts where are performed the professional practices.
So, we used the methodology of case study, with data collection techniques, document analysis and semi-structured interview of graduates in HRM, and we used as data processing technique: the content analysis.
The results revealed that the career of the interviewees reflects the data about the role of traineeship in the access to first job and the support to finding employment after completing the degree. We also conclude that school also contributes to instilling a positive spirit on the functioning of the labour market as well as the behavioural rules that potentiate their social integration, like forms of sociability and knowledge networks that remain well beyond the loop created by the imposition of education.

Index Terms—Human resources management, employability, career, expectations.
