The authors study the topic of youth employment in Russian regions through the lenses of both global

factors and national institutions. These include the national professional education system as well as personal

choice of occupation, university, employer and place of residence. Given that Russia’s regions belong

to a single state with common institutions, one language and an otherwise homogenous social structure, this

situation provides important insight into what helps young people fully realize their potential and ambitions

or, conversely, prevents them from doing so. Professional education is becoming more and more vital for

an individual’s career, self-reliance and ability to contribute to the development of the country. However,

while selecting a university or an employer, one can be susceptible to negative social experience which can

trigger the development of destructive attitudes. The authors look at how this can impact a person’s professional

career, which is prone to change given the pace of technological development today. Global networks

of people and organisations impact youth employment all over the world, including Russia. This results in

widespread remote working, which, in turn, brings highly-skilled vacancies to remote places. Remote working

and studying levels out inequality in access to educational and cultural institutions as well as to work

that young people find fulfilling. In this context, the article, inter alia, studies the impact of the national

“Digital Economy” strategy on youth employment in Russia.
