At present, young graduates entering the labour market face various difficulties. This article evinces that the connection between education, income and productivity in Kazakhstan, resulting from an imbalance between the demand and supply of labour, has created a mismatch between available vacancies and offered labour services. One possible solution is encouraging student competitiveness. Data were obtained by surveying university students; the results indicate the importance of educational level in achieving satisfactory results in the labour market. Thus, promoting education should remain a priority for countries wherein a substantial proportion of the workforce receives education only at the initial level.
