As reports surface about the instability of the job market for young people, employment seekers could turn to e-learning to boost their skills. The number of young people struggling to find work has topped an estimated one million as employers are often cutting back and outsourcing work to other companies to save money, the Independent reports. According to latest figures, half of 16 to 24-year-olds are classed as economically inactive – meaning they are out of work and not in education. Online learning courses could help those that are unemployed keep busy as well as build up their qualifications database to make themselves more appealing to potential employers.
