Abstract: With increasing urbanisation and industrialisation, the world is undergoing many changes that account for rapid growth and development in the educational and vocational. The present study was conducted in Delhi with an objective of examining the educational and vocational profile of employed youth. A sample of 100 educated employed youth of both sexes in the age group of 26- 30 years who had been working for at least five years was selected by snowball sampling procedure. Fifty- three percent were males whereas remaining forty- seven percent were female respondents. Maximum number of respondents had studied in Science stream. Only one- fifth of the respondents had studied commerce. There was a significant positive correlation between respondents’ education and their father’s and mother’s education. This shows that with the increase in the level of parents’ education the education level of the respondents also improved. Majority of the respondents had different job aspiration when they were studying as they had planned something different and were doing some different job as per their aspiration. The study revealed that majority of the respondents said that there curriculum had high relevance with their profession to get up to dated knowledge, developed rational and independent thinking and proved professionally beneficial for them. But the relationship between curriculum and adequate knowledge provided to start own enterprise show that these two variables were not independent and significant to each other. This is because as majority of the respondents were in service rather than in business.
