           News from AEGEE
AEGEE's reaction to Mc Kinsey report, highlighting some of the problems
behind youth unemployement
“In Europe, 74% of education providers were confident that their graduates
were prepared for work, but only 38% of youth and 35% of employers agreed”

statement, based on a meticulous research carried out toward 5,300 youth,
2,600 employers, and 700 post-secondary education providers across 8
countries, brings to light the difference of perspectives and the lack of
clear understanding among Education providers on the reality of the
situation for young people willing to enter the job market.
