Hungarian research on job seeking


As job seeking has become a serious issue all over Europe, two French exchange volunteers at Hungarian non-profit organization MediaGo are conducting a research on youth employment in Europe with Hungary on its focus.

The volunteers are spending a year in Hungary within the framework of EU funded European Volunteer Service (EVS) in MediaGo’s youth initiative entitled “I’m in the swim”. The project is aimed to reveal the hidden causes job seeking issues, focusing on the youth.

The study is carried out to understand the gap between the expectations of young adults and the companies looking for workforce to hire. The international project is centered in Hungary and is aimed to create a Hungary-based toolkit to be applied internationally by anyone seeking jobs.

The first and basic step of the project is a questionnaire to collect a sample of the European youth. Following the questionnaire, public forums would be created in the form of workshops to bring the respondents together. These workshops will be provided to give ground for sharing experiences and knowledge.

The final material offering a knowledge base for job seeking is expected to be published by the end of this year.
