One in three of Swedish office workers finds it hard or impossible to describe what they do for a living, according to a new survey.

People working in the IT and telecoms industries and people under 30 find it particularly hard to explain their job descriptions to friends, according to a survey of 3,033 white collar workers carried out for pension company Alecta.

Some 43 percent of office workers under 30 find it hard or impossible to describe what they do all day. Over half of workers in the IT and telecom industry have the same problem.
