Improving youth employment training in Egypt : final technical report
The research included a survey of 1200 Egyptian businesses along with multiple randomized trials for recruiting and training of young people. Findings show there are many hurdles for unemployed young people trying to find a job, and results illustrate the needs and biases of employers as well as the psychological frictions and skill deficiencies of potential workers. The recruitment experiments indicate that information frictions are an important factor – many people simply don’t know about the opportunities that are available to them. Investing in information campaigns is a promising way to increase application rates.
