The employment situation of young people today is characterized specifically by high unemployment and underemployment, lower quality jobs and difficult transitions into decent work, which combined, contribute to the detachment of the current generation from the labor market altogether.
According to the ILO, the world faces the challenge of creating 600 million jobs over the next decade. The challenge is formidable given the present growth and economic forecasts, and without significant changes in the policy environment.
At the same time as the world struggles with youth unemployment, paradoxically, it is experiencing a skills shortage. The McKinsey Report, drawing on survey data from nine countries, demonstrates that 43 per cent of employers indicated they could find the skills entry-level workers they needed.

Skills have become increasingly important in the globalized world. Vocational and technical skills are essential, but employers are seeking applicants with more. They want employees who can continue to learn, adapt to changing technology, listen and communicate effectively, solve problems independently, manage themselves at work, interact with co-workers, work in teams and follow supervision. .
