Airports are packed with travelers as the peak holiday season approaches, but taking a vacation is a luxury for young jobseekers, with two out of five having no vacation plans, a straw poll suggests.
In the poll of 566 jobseekers by job portal Saramin, 43 percent said they do not plan to go on holiday this summer.
Asked why, more than half said they would feel too anxious. About half also said they cannot afford it, while other reasons were that they are busy preparing for their job interviews (43 percent) and concern for their family (17 percent). Ten percent said they simply have no friends to go with.
