The problem of youth employment is one of the main employment related problems in the world. This study is devoted to searching for ways to improve the process of youth employment in Commonwealth of Independent States countries with regard to international experience. The specific features of the labor market in the Commonwealth of Independent States come from the nature of the market economy and production capabilities. The best indices are found in Kyrgyzstan and Belarus, while the worst–in Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. In order to solve these problems, the study recommended the following: to stimulate the interest of young people in training for jobs on demand through various programs and privileges; to optimize employment insurance; to encourage universities to investigate graduate employment problems and adjust their curricula accordingly; to implement advanced programs; to develop youth entrepreneurship.
