Belarus may tighten the rules for mandatory official assignment of the first job place for university graduates with regard to some specialties.
Lukashenka told a press conference for Russian regional mass media.
“Today in Belarus budget-sponsored students should work two years on the first job which they are assigned. We have not terminated this system. On the contrary we are thinking of tightening the rules and extending the term, at least with respect to some specialties. But we cannot do this to current graduates. First we need to enter into a contract with a university entrant and only in five years will be able tighten this policy,” he said.
He noted that Belarus does not have enough manpower: “Employers are looking for people. Young people clearly understand that they need to be better than others to get a job.”
Currently the number of vacancies in Minsk is 2 to 3 times more than the number of people looking for work. “Virtually all people with university diplomas have jobs. After all, it is not easy to get higher education. Requirements are very high,” said Lukashenka.
