An attempt was made in the present study to analyze the transition to work trajectory and the variable of work centrality among the higher education graduates. A sample of 1.004 graduates from two of the major public universities from Portugal (Universidade de Lisboa and Universidade Nova de Lisboa) was selected and administered 154- items of the work situation and the subjective relation with work (work centrality and work values) and the evaluation of work situation (work satisfaction) questionnaire. The collected data
from the respondents were subjected to statistical analysis (univariate and bi-variate) and association and correlation tests. The results indicated that significant difference existed between male and female group in the objective situation in work and in the subjective relation with work, but no significant difference was found in the subjective evaluation of work situation.
