Youthful employment on the riseTuesday, 12 September 2017 20:08
People with the Baccalauréat (advanced secondary education) certificate scored the highest where obtaining jobs was concerned – 77% - followed by those with apprenticeship contracts (65%) and graduates with Masters’ degrees (59%).
The sectors that employed the most first-time jobseekers – in volume and proportion - were: commerce, hotels and restaurants; specialized scientific and technical activities; and administrative and support services, Forem reported.
Interim work was the type of employment most open to young school leavers. “The increase in the rate of employment at six months underscores the reduction in the rate of job applications among people under the age of 25, which began in the second half of 2013 and has been confirmed since then,” noted Forem.
The agency attributed this situation to the combined effect of stimulus arrangements, a favourable economic climate since 2014, and the resumption of interim activity.
