Sociological attention on labor market issues varies among social contexts and intellectual approaches. The article focuses on the emergency of a sociology of labor markets, on its interfaces with other domains, and stresses its importance for the debate during the 1960's and 70's on the specificity of Latin American contemporary societies. It argues that the new economic sociology agenda and its conceptual tools have been renewing the sociology of labor markets traditional approach and illustrates this argument with recent research results on the search for job, labor market intermediaries and labor offer-demand match under flexible markets like São Paulo.
