The relevance of the chosen research topic lies primarily in the increasing share of young professionals in the workforce and the need to develop, in this regard, measures to address problems related to youth unemployment in Kazakhstan. The authors note that the education system does not always form students’ competencies that are in demand on the labor market, as a result of which employers do not want to hire university graduates, prefer workers with experience, which contributes to the growth of unemployment among university graduates. In this regard, the authors conducted an expert survey of the heads of organizations in order to identify their views on the competencies of university graduates needed in the labor market (130 people were interviewed). Recommendations for improving the education system with the aim of forming competencies important in the modern labor market are offered.
