The article documents the social dynamics in which the individual tries to find his place in the world through the professional choice. These dynamics become central in the construction of social identity and, most often, are charged with expectations and desires of transcendent character, and even religious.

To put a disproportionate hope in getting our place can become an opportunity to generate antisocial dynamics, opposing the urgency of reliability that seems to grow today.
