Young Spanish nurse pursues her dream in Germany

(From ec.europa.eu ) Moving abroad was a big decision for her and her family, but the Your first EURES job (YfEj) project supported her all the way. “My father is a craftsman, but he’s been unemployed for a long time,” Nerea says. “My mother worked in a hotel until two years ago.

Youth Guarantee five years on: Lessons learnt

(From ec.europa.eu ) One project that has supported such cross-border exchanges is the EU-funded MobiliseSME project, a sort of “matchmaking platform” for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

What makes a “good employer”?

(From ec.europa.eu ) Most employers would love to find out that they are appealing to potential employees, but what is it about an employer that motivates an individual’s job choice? What is it that makes an employer attractive? In 2015, Cedefop – the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training – published its European skills and jobs (ESJ) survey. As part of the survey, which focused on the problem of skill mismatch, Cedefop asked 49,000 EU adult workers from all 28 Member States what influenced their decision to accept their current job. Results revealed that employees didn’t...
