For many young individuals (those aged 15-24), the transition from school to work means entering the labour market relatively unskilled, inexperienced, unfamiliar with job search and unaware of the job opportunities open to them. Consequently, many of them face the possibility of unemployment during their initial years as members of the labour force. Despite the relatively high level of public attention given to the issue of unemployment, this attention seldom addresses the various types of unemployment and their underlying causes. This paper attempts to do this with respect to present-day youth unemployment.
