The Project aims to identify barriers for young migrants - from 15 to 24 years - and to (re-)integrate them into the labour market by transferring and adapting the JOIN IN A JOB! method to requirements in partner countries (Austria, Germany, Ire­land, Italy andPoland).


JOIN IN A JOB! contains a career guidance method set developed specially for working with young migrants. A resource and compe­tence oriented process combines questionnai­res and diagnostic tools to guide clients on their way to a job or further education.


The method consists of 3 stages depending on the client’s individual need for support:


Initial Assessment – need for information:

providing basic information about how to find a job or an apprenticeship, shaping main goals.


Intense Assessment – need for guidance and care:

providing individual advice in areas of need (e.g. legal, housing, migration aspects) and an empowering set of tools within the Job Box for career guidance.


Job Box – need for career guidance:

a fur­ther intense assessment, dealing with case ma­nagement and professional care in situations where social integration of the individual has to be set as a first step. This com­prehensive volume of handouts, instructions, case studies and documents help to create an individual training and education portfolio including clients informal and non-formal competences.
