A study carried out by the Ministry of Labor shows that 49 percent of unemployed persons have never attempted to apply for jobs. The study was conducted on random samples of 16,000 Saudis, 82 percent of them females.
The majority of job seekers are high school degree holders (37 percent) while only 1 percent of them are diploma degree holders. Many of those participating in the study justified their unemployment by saying they had not found right persons to help them search for jobs. Some of them said they did not bother searching because they don’t know English or are not qualified enough.
