This study evaluates the employment strategy in the context of recent technological advances and changes in entrepreneurial concepts and examines reflections of this on Turkey. Public policies that aim to increase the level of employment without focusing on entrepreneurship leave the economy behind in the race toward a more technology-oriented society. The basic problem of the employment policy is the emphasis on short-term goals at the expense of long-term policies. In this environment, "finding jobs" takes priority over "creating jobs". Employment policy, should give more weight to the promotion of entrepreneurship in order to succeed in the long-run.
