Can you imagine yourself having a job interview online? Or getting a specific simulation task to prove your skills even when you lack work experience? Our platform provides the basis for a modern social network linking young jobseekers and potential employers. The project, using ‘LinkedIn’ or a similar platform, will feature both formal and non-formal competences, provide feedback from employers to determine your strengths, showcase your capabilities, and more.
What’s the idea?

Since this would be a multinational project, it would require support at the European level to incorporate it into an existing website.
