What do you need to know about entrepreneurship?

By: Simon Corcoran – 02.01.2017 – 08:00:00The number of Australians studying for the next stage of their career is rising, and the country is on track to surpass Australia’s global ranking for the number of young people pursuing a career in the next decade.

But according to a report by the National Centre for Social and Economic Research, young Australians have also been under-represented in the workplace.

The NCSER is a leading independent research organisation, which has been studying entrepreneurship in Australia since 2004.

The organisation has studied over 5,000 Australians and over 400 businesses and organisations.

The NCSer’s findings reveal that young Australians are significantly under-represented in the workforce.

“There is a strong and growing focus on the entrepreneurial spirit among Australians,” said NCSE co-director Professor David Gifford.

“In the next few years, young people are going to have to look at how they use their skills in the real world to create value.”

The NFSER’s research suggests that there is an overrepresentation of young Australians in the labour market and it is these young people who are most likely to be in need of a career change.

“We find that about 30 per cent of young adults who have applied to a business have been in a job in the past year and a half,” Professor Giffon said.

“But of these applicants, about one in three are working today, and almost one in four are on the clock.”

That is a huge number.

That is more than twice as many people than are in the whole of Australia.

“And it’s a number that is significantly higher than the Australian population as a whole.”

Young people are also less likely to get involved in the broader workforce than their elders.

So in terms of the role of young job seekers, we think there is a gap.””

We also see that they are less likely than older people to be self-employed.”‘

Young people need to have a chance’Professor Giffords research has identified a number of reasons why young people may be under- represented in the job market.”

What we found is that there are three main reasons young people do not enter the workforce: they are not able to break into the industry they want to enter, they don’t have a high level of social capital, and they are more likely to fall out of favour in their workplace than their peers,” he said.

Young people who were under-qualified or not eligible for the right qualifications were not part of the workforce, Professor Giffs research suggests.”

Our research shows that those who are not qualified to work for their employer are more at risk of falling out of the workplace,” he added.”

They also need to be able to work with others, they need to feel comfortable in their role, they should have the skills and skillsets they need, and be able provide a positive experience for the workforce.

“The lack of support for young people to find and get a job is a serious issue, and Professor Ginson agrees that young people need support to break through.”

The research suggests the majority of young workers are not receiving a proper support system in their industry and there is also a very high proportion of young unemployed young people,” he noted.”

If young people feel that they don, or cannot, be supported in their careers they are very likely to become disengaged and less likely then to go into the workforce in the future.

He said young people should not be discouraged by the fact that the Australian economy has stagnated and there are few opportunities for young Australians to enter.””

We know that if young people have a positive and stable working environment, they have a higher probability of finding a job.”

He said young people should not be discouraged by the fact that the Australian economy has stagnated and there are few opportunities for young Australians to enter.

“You can’t put a cap on the number that are in and out of work, because that’s the number is growing and it’s increasing rapidly,” he advised.

“A lot of young jobs are going out of business, and a lot of job creation is happening and young people will continue to be the future of the economy.”
