Abstract
The article represents socio-psychological analysis of gender-specific experiences of uncertainty of professional status in the period of maturity. The authors describe the results of qualitative and quantitative data analysis of 112 people aged 33—39 years old, employed on full time and staying in a situation of threat of job loss or change of important parameters of their employment. On the basis of obtained results the authors make the conclusion about the existence of gender differences in the experiences of uncertainty of professional status in the period of maturity, which become apparent in the decreasing trends of the individual components of the experience of uncertainty from sample to sample, in the differences in the level of expression of these components, as well as in the differences in the configuration of the correlation relationship with different types of gender identity at this stage of ontogenesis. The article indicates the ordered impact of gender identity on the experience of professional status uncertainty in adult life, which is evident in a non-random trend of decreasing symptoms from sample to sample: passion, integral readiness for change and distraction decrease from masculine to feminine; from feminine to masculine — emotions and MITN decrease; from androgynous to feminine — avoidance decreases; from masculine to androgynous — frequency of problem-focused coping decreases.

Keywords: uncertainty, occupational status, gender identity, masculinity, androgyny, femininity, gender differences, maturity
