Kosovoyouth.com it’s all free!
Internet and technology have changed the way job seekers search for employment information and jobs and how employers find employees. Today employers and youth turn to online one-stop-shops to find employment matches and engagement opportunities.
However, the information available on the internet and accessible to young people is distributed on various platforms which, in addition to not being attractive and youth-friendly, are not even properly updated. For a young person to get the right information about education opportunities, employment, or similar civic engagements, the One-Stop-Shop called “Kosovo Youth” provides a youth-friendly, dynamic and collaborative platform for young people.
All information aggregated for youth in one address. We want to ease their access to in-formal education, training, volunteer engagement, internships, self-employment, and employment opportunities. The platform offers a better and clearer structure of the information distributed on the Internet and which, as of now, is inaccessible for young people in a single space.
For publishers like the CSOs, public and private sector institutions, young citizens, and other interested parties, the “One Stop Shop” has created the unique opportunity to receive and share information on education and employment positions, offer an analysis of the labor market situation through practical information on the current labor regulations, as well as available trends in job postings, career advice and much more.
Kosovoyouth.com strives to improve the cooperation between young people and actors of public institutions, civil society, and private businesses. This platform aims to contribute to the development of a dynamic and youth-friendly platform for young people and increased awareness of youth about the possibilities of professional development.
The project will address the issues mentioned above by providing a youth-friendly platform that will offer all the engagement possibilities for youth in one space and in real-time, as such avoiding disaggregation of information which, as it is being spread now, barely reaches youth.
Youth and job seekers can create a profile and build CV’s by adding their skills and search for available open positions, and employers/publishers can announce employment openings through our one-stop-shop tools.
This One-stop-Shop is financially supported by OSCE Mission in Kosovo thought the project “Supporting Youth in Public Participation SYPP, which is implemented under the project “Advancing Societal Confidence Building Measures”.
