الشباب العربي يعاني البطالة

Will he be able to find a job in the future?

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

Today Reda and Vicki talk about unemployment in the Arab world.

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) recently organised an Arab Employment Forum in the Lebanese capital city Beirut.

According to the ILO, 25% of Arab youth are unemployed and this number will keep increasing if nothing is done to stop it.

Juan Samaravia, the head of the ILO believes that countries are preoccupied with helping the banks and are not looking at ways of stoppping and reducing unemployment.

He told the BBC that governments should not simply try to save banks; they should try to save the whole economic process.

According to Samaravia, the economic process "is essentially about investment and job creation".

He also criticised many of the banks, saying that they had fantastic profits, but were lending very little money and charging incredibly high interest rates.

The ILO wants governments to put a lot more resources and investment into job creation.

It believes that doing so will prevent economic problems in the future.

But there is still a big problem that people are finding hard to solve.

Many young people looking for work do not have the experience required by employers and cannot get that experience because they cannot find a job!

This dilemma faces many young people around the world, and youth in the Arab world are no exception.

How can you find a job without experience? And how can you get job experience without a job? Write to us in English!

Searching for a job was really a tough trip, although I got it in 2 years and other people spent more and more time..
I think if there is no experience, you should have such good qualifications and certificates.

Eduacational organizations prepared students how to think not how to work so employer shouldn't take the experience as an impotrant requirements Mustafa, Khartoum, Sudan

I have heard your fantastic program about unemployed in arab world. What I would have to say is that Iam working for a leading company for no pay just to gain experience,and that what you have said. I strongly support the International Labour Organisation.

If there is no opportuninty for job around me, I better educate my self in job requirements, I would go to a library and read books what steps the lead me to find a job. Computers now are required in most jobs, so I have to get a help from a friend or borrow a book or look online for some free lessons that teaches me how to use computer if my financial situation dosen't allow me to pay for classes. After that I can ask to be a volunteer for certain time to get experiance that lead me to get jobs.
