    📊 Survey: Bridging Perspectives in the Job Market! 📊

    We’ve wrapped up our survey on digital skills in May of 2022, and the results painted an intriguing picture of the job market landscape. Here’s what we’ve discovered:

    🔍Participants: We heard from 233 unemployed individuals aged 18-25 and 252 employers across Austria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, and Italy.

    🕒 Timing: March 1st – May 31st, 2022.

    🔍 Research Questions:

    – What digital skills are crucial from the employer’s perspective?

    – How do unemployed youth perceive their digital skills in meeting job market demands?

    📊 Key Findings:

    – Organizational Perspective: Companies prioritize specific competency areas for their employees, with a strong emphasis on safe computer and internet usage, along with personal organization skills like work-life balance and time management.

    – Unemployed Perspective: Unemployed individuals recognize the importance of further training in all competency areas, indicating a readiness to enhance their skill sets.

    💡 Insights:

    – While unemployed individuals show consistent interest in training across all competency areas, companies exhibit varying priorities.

    – This comparison underscores the importance of aligning training initiatives with industry demands to bridge the gap between job seekers and employers.

    👏 A huge THANK YOU to all participants for contributing to this valuable research! Stay tuned for deeper insights and actionable takeaways from our survey results! 💼💻#DigitalSkills#JobMarketInsights#SurveyResults#StayTuned#DJO#DigitalJobOnboarding#ProjectResult1

  • How is the onboarding process changing in our digital era?

    💡 How is the onboarding process changing in our digital era? Which are the most beneficial digital skills required in the workplace?

    The #DJ project focuses on the new digital competencies required by the labour market.

    💭 During the past months, all the partners investigated this issue, collecting information among the youngest population, to better understand their digital skills and to explore their expectations regarding the work insertion, through a survey.
    Which are better mastered and which need further training?
    More than 200 youths, from the four partners’ countries, answered our questions.

    💻 On the other hand, we involved almost 250 firms in the survey.
    Among them, 40 companies that act daily with digital tools, accepted to speak with us and narrate their daily challenges in this evolving world.

    Stay tuned to discover all our results!

  • The Partners

    The #DJproject consortium consists of six full partners from five countries:

    • FH JOANNEUM 🇦🇹



    • HAAGA-HELIA 🇫🇮

    • Fondazione Fenice Onlus 🇮🇹


  • The DJ Project

    The #DJproject – Digital Job Onboarding – directly addresses #digitaltransformation through development of #digitalreadiness, resilience and capacity, through operating at the intersection of digital divide and digital #labour market transformation and the needs of unemployed #youngpeople. Also, it overlaps with the vulnerable group of #NEETs (young people neither in employment nor in education and training) and other young people at risk of marginalisation.

    DJ also addresses the priority #Environment and fight against climate change through a training programme for work-related sustainability innovation projects.

    With the #COVID‐19 pandemic accelerating the digital transition, the digital skills gap became a key determinant in the employability of young people and their ability to seize the opportunities stemming from this transition. Targeted upskilling helps young people respond to the growing demand for digital skills and addresses the digital divide.” (EC 2020). DJ’s goal is to help young people who have been left behind during the pandemic to activate their career potential with a special focus on new forms of digital working – an important step to reduce youth unemployment rate, which is twice as high as the general unemployment rate in the EU.
