The paper focuses on the job success of Sicilians Graduates comparing
people who remain in Sicily for work reasons (Stayers) and who moves from Sicily
to another Italian region or abroad (Movers) during 2016. Data referred to the Almalaurea
Consortium annual survey collecting data of first and second level graduates
interviewed at one, three or five years from graduation.We model the probability
to be a successful graduate by means of a logistic regression model considering
job and curriculum characteristics. The results show that many factors influence the
job success, with some differences between graduates interviwed 1 or 5 years after
graduation, but it is clear that to be a Mover increases significantly the probability
to be successful graduate.
