Abstract The first postcommunist generation of youth in Slovakia set out on its path by making decisions on professional orientation at the age when encounter & experience are perceived as an important & controversial dimensions of one's personality. The second phase, consisting of decision making on social breakthrough into the labor market, has been shifted into another civilization time-space through the transformation of real socialism into real capitalism. Unemployment as a social threat & as a life experience is an element of youth individualization that is demonstrated by acceptance of flexible solutions, including readiness to change place of residence & professional qualifications. A comparison of 1993 & 1995 surveys indicates that the initial shock of unemployment has been overcome.
