Based on the analysis, the current problems faced by young people are identified. Among the main problems in this market are high unemployment, lack of experience, low wages, lack of vacancies of interest, absence or lack of knowledge, skills and abilities. To determine the role of the state in solving these problems, the article analyzes the regulatory legal acts of the Russian Federation. The federal and regional levels are considered.

At the regional level, the measures of Moscow are considered as an example, including: provision of free consultations, implementation of career guidance, creation of database of vacancies, promotion of temporary employment of young people, and etc. In addition, the projects “My career”, “First job”, “In-work”, the program “Pump up your career” were studied.
