(Trans)former son corps, stratégie d'insertion professionnelle au féminin ?

Abstract : Holding a higher educational diploma is certainly an advantage for young women in search of employment. However, this alone does not seem to suffice. A survey carried out on female students at the University of Valenciennes has shown that the respondents feel their initial training has not provided them with everything they need. Their professional projects involve the use of some innovative complementary strategies designed in response to the demands of the labour market. These young women are investing in improving their physical appearance as a means of increasing their chances of gaining a place on the labour market. Improving their physical appearance therefore constitutes an anticipatory strategy, an attempt to gain added value to complete the educational capital required to give them access to the labour market.
