The European financial crisis and the changes in the work market have produced effects on the ability to plan for the future and the definition of a coherent and stable self, especially for young people. The study relates to the effects that these difficulties linked to entering the world of work could have on the process of consolidation of personal and professional Italian young adults identity. We used a narrative approach, through which we explored the experiences account of looking for a work of 80 emerging adults, precarious or unemployed. The lexical analysis of texts identified five classes of meaning regarding identity consolidation and personal strategies used to coping with labour market difficulties. Implications of moratorium / achievement of identity are also discussed in terms of agency and identity distress.
Keywords: Youth precariousness and unemployment, identity, agency, distress, lexical analysis
