Gourab Chakma and Asifa Nargis
Unemployment problem in Bangladesh is considered as one of the major obstacle for development and highly educated unemployed population is growing every year. Market experts are indicating that lack of skills of the graduates is causing such scenario while academicians and employers are having separate preferences over employment skills. According to this study, twenty fundamental employment skills are selected and both academicians’ & employers’ opinions are measured by ranking the skills according to their preferences. Three scales are created and university graduates’ skills are measured by each scale. After the skill measurement analysis, it’s found that the academician’ and employers’ skill preferences have no significant differences. So, the employers’ demand for skills is not causing the high number of educated unemployed graduates. As the academicians’ skill preferences is not much different than the employers’, the problem may lies in the curriculum of the universities.
