Dean, Faculty of Economics
Khorog State University
Today, our planet’s population includes almost two billion young adults and teenagers. Most of these young people come from emerging nations, and they can either make their home countries as new world leaders, or destroy them.
These days the high unemployment rate among young adults is an undeniable fact, and unemployment in general is one of the most pressing socio-economic problems of the modern age. Young specialists fail to adequately assess their skills, overestimating their value in the labour market. The situation which occurred in the labour market during the recent recession, deteriorated the competencies that the workforce had to offer and decreased the number of available job openings, thereby significantly reducing the opportunities for young adults to fulfill their potential and apply professional skills. The labour market still suffers from scarcity of qualified specialists.
Meanwhile, these problems have potential ways out. This lecture will propose major solutions for unemployment among youth.
