Securing employment depends on several factors—those innate to the individual and those that are exogenous. Using a socioeconomic approach, this paper suggests a theoretical study model, i.e., the holocletic model, for professional insertion. Towards this end, the paper identifies the constraint factors and the job search methods used by former trainees, and concludes that age, parent’s nationality, schooling, qualification levels and vocational training features are connected to the job-search method that allows the ex-trainee to get a job. On the other hand, the constraints to the professional insertion of the ex-trainees are: work experience, qualification level, the path and kind of vocational training, and employment characteristics. The paper provides a set of elements that help to distinguish, compare and access the eclectic dominant mainstream in this regard.
