  • Job-hunting with the help of librarians

In 2015 and 2016, the P. R. Slaveykov" - Veliko Tarnovo will implement training activities for library professionals and citizens under the Erasmus + Programme through the project "LinkInJob-job hunting with the help of Librarians".

The project is in partnership with 6 other public and university libraries from Austria, Ireland, Latvia, Romania, Slovenia and Finland. To the library in. The Ljubljana Metropolitan Library (Mestna knjiznica Ljubljana), Slovenia is the project coordinator.

"LinkINjob: job search with the help of librarians is a project that supports the Europe 2020 strategy, strengthening knowledge and innovation as a driver for future growth. One of the objectives of the 2020 strategy is to raise the employment rate of the population aged 20-64, which is currently 69%, to at least 75%, to increase the participation of women and older workers and to facilitate more effective integration of migrants into the workforce.

This project directly addresses one of the key objectives of the Education and Training 2020 Strategy. In February 2014, there were around 25 920 million unemployed people in Europe and the unemployment rate was 11.9%. It is essential for the unemployed to be informed that they can gain new knowledge and develop their social and civic skills as a means to prevent social exclusion. Unemployed people face many problems when looking for work, for example lack of information literacy and skills to identify their own personal strengths and weaknesses and interests. Modern public libraries are local centres for education, culture, information and at the same time work as social meeting points. Libraries have become an important link and point of cooperation between vocational education and training and the labour market.

The target group of the project - the unemployed will be informed about the opportunities for lifelong learning: non-formal education and non-formal training. Through education and training, all citizens should be enabled to benefit from quality education and to acquire and renew throughout their lives the knowledge, skills and competences needed for employment, social inclusion, active citizenship and personal fulfilment.

P. R. Slaveykov" has developed the project website (visit, which in 2015 will provide information for citizens from all partner countries about upcoming trainings and events organized by the project.
