MobiPro-EU’s Job For Your Life

job_480_355In order to cover its lack in qualified workers, Germany recently launched a program of financial help to attract young people from around Europe, taking also into consideration that many EU countries show very high rates of unemployment.

The program that goes by the name MobiPro-EU and was promoted online with the name The Job of my Life, was inaugurated last January and is also presented as a contribution to the fight against unemployment within the EU.

MobiPro-EU runs until the end of 2016. The program’s main task is to recruit young skilled workers and it addresses EU citizens from 18 to 35 years old (in some cases even 40 years old), who are unemployed and want to work in one of the sectors where Germany lacks in staff, such as hotel and catering industries, informatics and the medical sector.

The program affords a budget of 139 million euros to fund German language lessons that will take place either in the country of origin or in the country of destination, as well as the participants’ financial support and cover their travel expenses that have to do with a job interview and the training period in a company.

Since the beginning of the year, MobiPro-EU received 2,100 applications for financial support as well as 170,000 visits at the program’s site

Even though the program addresses all Europeans, it emphasizes on the countries of southern Europe where the unemployment rate is significantly high and the opportunities young people have to find a job there are limited.
