The analysis of career paths suffers from a lack of exploratory tools and dynamic models, due in part to the inherent high dimensionality of the problem. Paths may be understood as directed traversais through a graph whose nodes consist of "job types", which we define as industry and occupation pairs. We want to develop tools to understand and detect high-level features of both the labor market and the workers moving through it - career dynamics. To do this, we map the discrete space of jobs into a d-dimensional continuous space; proximity between jobs will mean that they are "close" to each other in a non-negligible subset of career paths. This embedding allows one to visualize the job landscape. Moreover, we can map individual or groups of career paths to this space, extract features of their collective structure, and construct statistical tests comparing groups by means of this mapping.
