Young Jobseekers Skip Summer Vacation

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.

More than half of young jobseekers spend at least W200,000 a month to pad out their resumes and improve their chances in an increasingly competitive employment market (US$1=W1,122).

For many young jobseekers, who have no stable income, that is very expensive.

Job portal Saramin polled 500 jobseekers last week, and 51 percent said they spend more than W200,000 a month to boost their skills and stand out in the job market. Some spend W500,000 to W1 million and a handful more than W1 million.
