Remove entry barriers to the labour market!

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 in the partner countries many coaches and career guidance officers should learn and apply the method. The aim is (re-)integration in the labour market.

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 three stages depending on the individual client’s need:

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.


  • An edited fieldbook provides the basic for the proper use of the instruments, contains contributions by the partners regarding their training activities, phases and impacts on VET systems
  • Trainings for master coaches and career guidance officers to transfer and use the counselling method
  • National reports, web site and communication platform
