The conclusions of the meeting and the proposals were distributed to all the competent authorities, local bodies, private bodies, and constituted a basis for future actions.
Action 8: Counselling for the beneficiaries’ professional integration and employment.
During this action great emphasis was placed on supporting the beneficiary so that he acquired a better understanding of himself and his behaviour.
The counselling for the beneficiaries’ professional integration and employment was a process during which the beneficiary:
- Collected information about himself and the job market.
- Created a precise picture of himself (interests, values)
- Developed realistic goals for his professional career.
- Developed and implemented a strategy for the achievement of his goals.
The professional counselling was performed by professional counselling specialists with the objective to outline the unemployed person’s professional profile through the inspection and understanding of himself, his qualifications, his abilities, his interests, his resources and his limitations. During this stage the professional counsellor helped the beneficiary to assess his personal and professional past, to determine his professional goals, to develop his qualifications and to acquire specialized information on matters of employment, the job market etc.
