The paper deals with the study of labor market dynamics, and aims to characterize its equilibriums and possible trajectories. The theoretical background is the theory of the segmented labor market. The main idea is that this theory is well adapted to interpret the observed trajectories, due to the heterogeneity of the work situations. The Kohonen algorithm is used to define the segments of the labor market. The trajectories are reconstructed by means of a non homogeneous Markov model and classified by using a Kohonen algorithm again.
