ICT also to help people to find a job
The ICT sector is creating jobs despite the crisis... But, at the same time, ICT are helping a lot of people to find job: digital tools for professional guidance, updated information about labour market, social media… make people more effective in their processes to find a job.
In Barcelona we are working hard to take advantage of ICT and apply them to our employment programmes. You can see our work at www.bcn.cat/treball (english version is available)
Between thousand of contents and digital applications, please have a look to our "demand mapping": about 1.000 job descriptions - updated every year - with job offers updated in real time. By the other hand, we are collecting complete datas of our users' skills and competences, in order to make a qualitative matching between demand and supply.
Without ICT it could not be possible!
