A lack of experience has led to some young job hunters being unaware of what career route they want to go down in the years ahead, the Notgoingtouni.co.uk managing director, Spencer Mehlman, said.
"A great number of them aren't very sure of their career path or their chosen career, and a lot of that is down to them never having really been in the workplace," he stated.
Some of the preconceived ideas about work which people possess might be addressed with the aid of more work experience opportunities, Mr Mehlman added, with this also helping to define the kind of environment they might benefit from working in.
The 2011 Budget announcement recently confirmed that young people will be supported with the help of 80,000 new work experience places.
