Unemployed youth, especially fresh graduate, do not really understand their skills and how to implement it, yet they tend to overesAmated their skill, and asking excessive reward solely based on their educaAonal background. Business owner not interested on hiring this kind of youth. 2. Other cases of youth undervaluing their skills are also exist. This resulAng on voluntary unemployment due to lack of conﬁdence. 3. The youth unemployment is basically mentality & aBtude problem. Laziness becoming one of the stumbling block for youth from gefng a job. 4. EducaAon in Indonesia emphasizing to much in theory, but lack of experience to solve real problems.
