Background/Objectives: An empirical analysis of strategies in the youth agrarian labour market, to identify the attitude of the rural unemployed youth towards professional training, acquiring a new specialty and choosing job search channels, and to understand their conception of “suitable employment”. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Our research based on the micro-data of the nationwide survey Comprehensive monitoring of living conditions. Findings: The specific features of the rural young people’s behavior on the Russian labour market are identified. The results of the study show that the proportion of young people living both in the city and in the countryside who do not see the point of additional training is high. An important feature of a suitable job, meeting the young people’s requirements, is a good wage and the degree to which the work matches the specialty. A certain part of the young unemployed consider any job they would manage to find suitable. Applications/Improvements: Understanding of the age features of behavior of the young people on the agrarian labour market would improve the efficiency of the public employment policies.
