Title

Peculiarities of youth unemployment: a case study


Abstract

The demand for youth employment is increased due to the development of international integration and improving competitiveness of the labor market in Kazakhstan in line with modern requirements. As a result, most young people face obstacles and difficulties in finding a job in their specialty. At the same time, such problems as the youth unemployment arise due to the ignorance of the situation on the labor market, the lack of professional preparedness for a competitive environment, and the lack of professional and life experience, necessary skills, and competencies. The Kazakhstan labor market has been analyzed in the context of the youth unemployment problems issues in this article. Based on the analysis, the main recommendations have been formulated that contribute to improving the situation in the labor market for the youth and reducing their unemployment. The authors have analyzed the dynamics of the self-employed youth and the structure of the youth employment by types of economic activity in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
