BLOIS, Juan Pedro. The labor market of sociologists in Argentina since the restoration of democracy: The case of the UBA graduates. Trab. soc. [online]. 2014, n.22, pp.104-122. ISSN 1514-6871.

Since democracy was reestablished, the work places where sociologists were employed in Argentina experienced a remarkable growth and became highly heterogeneous. To the recovery and normalization of academic institutions, which extended the amount of positions where sociologists could engage in teaching and social research, a set of non-academic institutions were added which began to recruit a growing number of sociologists (state agencies, consulting firms specializing in market research or public opinion polls, large private companies, NGOs). Although it was not an unprecedented phenomenon, the expansion of these placements produced a deep redefinition of the local sociology field, with a growing number of individuals using the tools of the discipline beyond academia. This paper analyzes and describes the changes in the labor market of sociologists since the mid eighties. On the one hand, it seeks to examine the varied spheres or areas that incorporate graduates, the tasks they demand, the pace they imposed, the methods of recruitment and circulation and the representations or evaluation they generate in sociologists. On the other, it tries to show that, diffrently from other national cases, the circulation and multiple placements are very frequent.
