Published on

Tensions on the labour market reflect recruitment difficulties that are often seen as the result of a gap, in terms of quantity and quality, between the skills of applicants and the expectations of employers. But does such a gap exist for young people at the start of their working lives? Do they need to be trained in short-staffed jobs in order to be recruited? And how can they find long-term employment? Based on data from the Génération survey, this Céreq Bref looks at the situation of three tension-related job families in the early years of working life for young people who left vocational training in 2017.
