Description The Job-Finders' Club is a program for 45+ long-term unemployed to be executed by social and employment professionals. The method has three parts: motivation, job-searching techniques and network building. The consultants (social or employment professionals) motivate a group of 45+ long-term unemployed clients to actively start to search job or make own business by raising self-knowledge, self-esteem. The consultans also transmit the necessary skills for job-searching (CVs, interviews, communicating skills, etc.). Parallel to these activities, the consultants build a network of local actors (labour office, local authorities, entrepreneurs, chambers, family help centers, libraries, etc.) who are intrested in fighting against unemployment. This network widens the network of the clients and helps them to return to the labour-market with success.
Target group social or employment professionals working with 45+ years old long-term unemployed
