Personal Branding 4EUth Employment is a new initiative to overcome youth unemployment in EU promoted by Association Coaching 4 EU (Romania), Fundación Catalunya Voluntaria (Spain) and United Society of Balkans (Greece).
For 2 years, Personal Branding 4EUth Employment was financed by the European Commission, as a youth exchange in the mark of the Youth in Action program in 2013 in Romania and Erasmus+ in 2014 in Spain.
The objective of the project is to offer an alternative tool, like Personal Branding, for improving employment situation of young people in Europe.
This idea appeared in the context of high youth unemployment rates in Europe (where 1 in 5 people under 25 that are willing to work cannot find a job), in accordance with the proiorities of the European Comission and Europe 2020 strategy.
The project is designed for unemployed young people, looking for a job, able to communicate in English and motivated to improve their employability skills.
