From Education to Employment: Bridging the Job Market Gap

Slides for our webinar at Making Cents International.

Summary:
Youth unemployment is one of the greatest and most complex challenges of our time, and among many other factors, the widening gap between the education system and the labor market is a driving force of youth unemployment in many countries. Due to the complexity of the issue, the resolution of global youth unemployment requires the collective effort of a variety of stakeholders, including educators, public policy and employers. This webinar takes a deep dive into the crisis and seeks to disentangle the factors and actors that collectively led to it. Moreover, it provides insights into challenges and opportunities that arise at the intersection of the education system and the labor market. To conclude, it offers a variety of creative ideas for how each and everyone of us can get actively involved in his or her daily function to help and tackle youth unemployment.

  10. 10. Intersection Education System – Labor Market 11© Prof. Dr. Peter VogelAugust 11th, 2015 “I always thought that by graduating from a renowned university I would easily find a job within a few months time. But I was wrong. Now it is over a year and things just won’t get any better. Neither for me nor for my peers…” (Hanna, 25, recent graduate from a leading business school) 75% of European universities provide little or no career guidance (Futurework Forum) No, and I would not use it anyway Yes, and it is useful Yes, but it is not useful No, but I would find it useful

Hultin, 2010) Addressing the Mismatch “It is imperative that we find solutions to bridge the job market gap & connect the right talents with the available jobs, no matter where they are!” (FutureWork Forum)
