Abstract

This book outlines and examines a contemporary labour market policy challenge for many countries, both developed and developing, in the Asia Pacific region. The transition of recent graduates from education to employment is a key issue in building sustainable communities and resilient economies. However, graduates are finding increasing difficulty in attaining post-qualification employment.
