In the framework of the health crisis without precedent, the government is supporting the economic recovery with a series of measures put in place since 15 march. Bruno Le Maire, minister of Economy, Finance and the Stimulus said on 12 July that the employment is now the absolute priority of the end of the quinquennium. The young people are, according to the Minister, the priority of priorities, and innovative initiatives are launched to help in the difficult task of job search. We are focusing today on one of them, a “serious game” of job search.
A place on the labour market for young people at the end of summer
Bruno Le Maire reiterated Sunday the 12th of July wanting to enable young people ” to find a place on the labour market as soon as the back to school “. For this, a method in concertarion very closely with the regions will be put in place. The region Hauts-de-France is a region particularly affected by the crisis, and it is, in particular, in this region, Liévin in the Pas-de-Calais as a “serious game” has been launched to support the mobility of young people in employment.
Joka Jobs, an application that promotes employment in a short circuit in the mining Basin
To put overcome the barriers that can prevent young people embarks on the job search and the attempt to understand the expectations of employers, we need to demystify the course of the job seeker, which is often very scary. It is this situation that has pushed Dana Diminescu, to found JokaJobs.
To Lievin, thanks to this application, the search may be done using an app that provides a geographic location that will allow job seekers to reconnect with the labour market. On a map covered by clouds, the user explores his or her city and can gradually clear the clouds throughout its movements and its interactions that make him earn points, and unlock employment opportunities.
An employment policy based on mobility, the network and the direct encounter between young people and recruiters
According to the research of Diminescu within populations in a precarious situation, and those who do the best are the most mobile and formed the most contact. “The more a person is mobile, the more it builds relationships, which are called weak ties, the more opportunities”.
The application therefore seeks not only to break the ice during first meetings, but it also encourages mobility.
The application also enables employers to bring the youth candidates. Frédéric Quentin, commercial Manager on the mining basin for Bouygues Building North-East, considers that this application is a resource to discover the trades of the building and construction, and that it will allow them to connect with candidates, especially younger people.
This application is part of the Engagement for the renewal of the mining Basin (ERBM). Other actions are also planned in this framework as the “Harvest of the job” or “the Ecout’ Truck “, the device IEJ of the Mission Locale de Lens-Liévin or of the overall support of the advisers of Pole Employment.
Initiatives all around France will see the day
Bruno Le Maire said that as early as next week, the government will specify the devices to young people with the objective that they be put in place as quickly as possible to “welcome the young people in the best conditions in September”.
