In many countries today there are many highly qualified graduates without employment. What factors may have caused this situation and what, in your opinion, can/should be done about it?
The unemployed scholar’s rate is increasing in several countries due to the unavailability of job vacancies. I do believe that the government has an authority to tackle this problem with expanding the number and types of vacant job position. On the one hand, the number of graduates of is unbalanced with the number of vacant jobs which are opened by the corporation. For instance, Indonesia manages to have more than 300,000 bachelors in every year, and this number seems to grow year by year, but it might just around 10-20% from the total that hit the job directly, leaving the rest as the jobless. If this situation continued in the future, then the number of unemployment would rise rapidly and might cause an economic-decline movement. Because the inhabitant cannot earn the money for their own living, and it might cause a crisis later. Therefore, I think that the stakeholder is playing a core role here. In order to expand the number of needed employee, the governance can do the open recruitments, especially in state-owned enterprises. With the big total number of state-owned enterprises (BUMN), the demand for employment will be rose and it can be a chance for every fresh graduate to fill the vacant job. Precisely, this movement can be a win-win solution for the government and the scholar. To reiterate, the small number of applicable job that offered is the reason for the jobless happening, and with the decision by government in widened the vacant position in state-owned enterprises can solve this situation.
