ABSTRACT
Data of a survey among German executives and entrepreneurs of medium sized companies of the manufacturing industry are used to illustrate careers of the contemporary managerial positional elite in East Germany. Most members of this business elite have a background in the former socialist economy of the German Democratic Republic. A special multivariate method (optimal matching of sequence data describing careers during the time frame 1981-2001) reveals that some the elite's recent features -- for instance: age structure, job mobility, ownership in companies, and qualifications -- are still influenced by windows of opportunities in the beginning of the 90's, and are correlated with special pattern of occupational states (sequences of positions). The dominant career pattern can be described by the term "continuousness". The empirical results are finally discussed in regard to the concepts of continuity of careers and success of achievements.
