Transitional Employments in IT occupations: Opportunities or Risks for Women’s Career? This paper presents some results drawn from a case study of an Italian mediumlarge IT firm focusing on transitional employments of women IT professionals and the impact on their careers. It concludes that transitional labour markets played a marginal role in supporting transitional employments partly because they are still defined on standard employment of a male-breadwinner-worker as the ideal worker and partly because they are not sufficiently shaped for the specific needs of a knowledge-based-organisation. Instead a good capacity in creating new intellectual capital inside the organisation and a dual career/dual breadwinner model family, enhanced women IT professionals career’s opportunities after the transition from one employment status to another.
