Levels of unemployment among young people: 'Take all the opportunities you are given

The number of young people (aged 15 to 25 years), and that the work has been since the start of the coronacrisis decreased with 139,000. It has been almost a trebling of the UNEMPLOYMENT insurance benefits of up to 11,000 paid in February) to 31,000 million (in may). These are the hard numbers. What are some of the best pieces of advice for young people?

in The areas where a lot of young people have been hardest hit in the coronacrisis, says Rob Whites, arbeidsmarktexpert of the BODY. "The hotel industry, for the industry, and the retail sector. In addition, 66 per cent of the young people flexcontract. In 2008, it was 53 per cent. Extremely a lot of young people are very quickly lost."

Soufiane Oumghar (28), it is jongerenadviseur in the city of Amsterdam, and is common enough to young people that their (re -) employment will be lost. "If there is a vacancy, it gets quickly filled. Employers have a lot of young people from which to choose. At times the most educated or the ones with the most experience for the job. This means that vulnerable young people with a less good position now at the tail conclude of the line."

“Make sure there is no gap in your resume / cv is created. Grow your network and invest in yourself and in the people around you.”
Soufiane Oumghar, jongerenadviseur

That uncertainty creates a lot of frustration among the youth, see, Oumghar. "A lot of disappointment can have an effect on your self-confidence and resilience of young people. However, I would advise them to apply for a job and a lot of trying."

it is a good idea to do not focusing on your dream job, " says Oumghar. "Each piece of work brings together ideas and develop them. Whatever you choose, don't have a choice to live your life. Also, I have dozens of jobs to do before I was here, I came out of it."

Less jobs, but still features < / p> Although the number of job openings since march, has dropped, there is still a job, " says Whites. "As for the delivery, and in the agricultural sector. Start in the hospitality industry again, slowly. There are now more options. Now, let's say, there will be events to be allowed, then you'll get a different picture."

"don't Think that a whole branch broke," says Oumghar. "Open the door to job applications. Lets hear from you. When, for example, the hospitality industry, lots of runs, they have a lot of young people. If you'll be able to inform you are made, you will be more quickly addressed."

“in the distribution, logistics, clean-up and make sure its jobs are to be found”

in the distribution, logistics, clean-up and care to find jobs, " says Oumghar. "We look at whether young people's qualities and have to get to work. As a kid, that I was guided to work at Schiphol airport, at the baggage carousel, and now as a cleaner in a hospital. In each of the jobs you are individually working on, and you will have a clear task to do."

"the Young taxi driver had to keep driving a car, so that is a tip I have delivery of parcels. Maybe it is not something that they have always wanted to do, but it's better than three months of unemployment at home. You will earn not only money, but also to put your contacts in."

is No gap in your resume / cv < / p> so How can recent graduates, the opportunities to increase labour market? Oumghar, "Seek not only to jobs, which are exactly in your field of study, but are set a bit wider on it. Don, meanwhile, is socially engaged, for example, by volunteering to do so. There is not a gap in your resume / cv, and expand your network. Our advice is to invest in yourself and in the people around you."

the gap in your resume may seem like a not to be missed in the coronacrisis, but if you are broad constructs, it is possible to a great deal. Whites: "If you're a chef and you have to necessarily be a chef to stay. You have to wait to this again in jobs to come. If the employer then, after some time, your cv, look at it and see that you have over the past six years, and nothing done, gives a less favourable picture than that of someone who, for example, asparagus has been put on the land or in a warehouse, working on it."

It will be a while before employers are going to have to dare to be good at the services, think of Whites. "For example, you can't get a job next year as well. No, you grab all of the opportunities that you get started. Be keen on the chances of that are."

Call, NUjij, you are between the ages of 18 and 25 years of age and is unemployed is irrelevant. How does it come about? We'd love to hear your side of the story on the NUjij.
