How can the job centre help me find a job?

The role of the job centre is to help you with your job search.

The job centre has different offers for job seekers, among other things they can help you:

  • Upgrade your skills.
  • Expand your network.
  • Get relevant work experience.
  • Improve your applications and your CV.

The job centre itself handles some activities, but often it is external operators that handle the different measures.

Opportunity for job search at the job centre

At the job centre there are computers available that you can use for your job search. So the job centre can be the location where you do your job search.
