Surfing the labour market
FreeThis app aims to help young people to learn more about themselves, find work and pursue careers that are satisfying, fulfilling and aligned to their skills and abilities.
Job search is a process that may be full of uncertainties and frustration. However, it does not need to be like this. Instead, it can be a fulfilling and life-changing experience if young jobseekers receive adequate resources and know-how. And this is the main objective of the present app: being an effective career instruction tool.
The app is based on the ILO guide "Surfing the labour market: job search skills for young people".
By going through the app’s different sections young people can learn more about:
• Self-discovery and the exploration of possible career paths,
• Writing an effective curriculum vitae,
• Planning a job search,
• Undergoing a job interview and
• Managing the first period on the job.
