Abstract: This research paper investigates the work locus of control and the level of self-esteem of the unemployed Macedonian young people. The research findings are result of a research study about the Macedonian Youth Unemployment financed by Friedrich Ebert Foundation -Office in Skopje and conducted by the authors in 2016 on a representative national sample (N=1009) consisted from unemployed young people aged 15-29, citizens of Republic of Macedonia, from all eight statistical regions. The youth unemployment is a serious problem in the country as its rate for the last several years is almost double (approximately 50%) than the general unemployment rate (23,7% in this moment). It was assumed that the (external) work locus of control and the (low) self-esteem are related to the unemployment and of course to certain demographic characteristics (age, educational level, place of living...). There are no previous researchdata on this topic in a national context, that’s why the research approach and the findings can be considered as novelty for the Macedonian scientific literature. For this particular part of the research study, the applied methodology used research instruments developed by Spector (1988) and Rosenberg (1965).
