That is the opinion of Kevin Green, chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, following today's announcement that one million young people in the UK are now in unemployment.
Rather than being disheartened by the figures, Mr Green said it is an opportunity to help implement new initiatives to create new sales jobs and other roles to help stimulate the employment market.
"The other priority is to address the supply side and the current skills mismatch in our jobs market. This is not just an area for government action; the business community can play a key role," he explained.
Mr Green said this could be achieved through working with schools and young people's charities in order to raise awareness and aspirations among young people in the UK.
