High unemployment among young college graduates in Turkey

According to a research paper by Isıl Kurnaz, a faculty member at the School of Economics and Administrative Sciences of Gazi University in Ankara, unemployment among college graduates between the ages of 18 and 24 has reached 30\%. The paper points out that the unemployment rate among college graduates totals 8.7\%, whereas the rate goes up to 30\% for fresh graduates. Although this rate is even higher in some European countries such as Greece, Spain, Italy, and Portugal, young college graduates in Turkey are less likely to find a job compared to those countries. A large part of the fresh graduates in Turkey have to accept jobs they are over-qualified for.
