The paper notes that unemployment among young professionals is one of the most important problems in Kazakhstani society. The youth unemployment rate in Kazakhstan is very high. During the economic crisis, youth becomes the most vulnerable group. The level of unemployment among young professionals is almost half of the total unemployment rate in general.The relevance of the chosen research topic lies, first of all, in the increasing share of young specialists in the number of labour force and in the need to develop, in this regard, measures to solve problems associated with the country's youth unemployment. The authors note that the education system does not always form the competencies demanded by students in the labour market, as a result of which employers do not want to hire university graduates; they prefer workers having experience, which contributes to the growth of unemployment among university graduates. In this regard, the authors conducted an expert survey of heads of organizations in order to identify their opinions on the competencies of university graduates needed in the labour market (130 people were interviewed). The authors came to the conclusion that the education system does not adequately meet the needs of society as a whole and the economy in particular, and does not fully form the necessary competencies for university students.Recommendations are offered on improving the education system in order to form competencies that are important in the modern labour market
