About one-third of new high school and college graduates in Taiwan are anxious about their careers, according to a recent survey.

Some 32.63 percent of 1,085 respondents said they are anxious about their future, while 18.61 percent have no worries about their career and the remaining 48.76 percent had no opinion, according to findings of the survey released by Taiwan Jobs website, part of the island's labor authority.

Among those who expressed anxiety about their careers, 56.78 percent said they don't know what kind of jobs they are best suited to do, while about half of them fear being incapable of meeting job requirements.

Meanwhile, 23.73 percent are concerned their bosses will be dissatisfied with their performance or they will underperform compared to their colleagues, the poll showed.

A previous survey by local human resource platform 1111 Job Bank found that about 86 percent of the 1,076 respondents said they feel stressed at work and financially due to low salaries and slow salary growth.
