The entry into the working world is an important step for every young person, but it is full of several uncertainties regarding the path to follow. This Thursday, as part of the Jugend Jobdag, associations, companies, employers and training institutes are at your disposal to answer your questions regarding your entry into the working world.
The Jugend Jobdag addresses youngsters and parents who wish to enter directly into contact with the information and orientation services which are adapted to their situation or to inform themselves about the requirements for different jobs at the companies of the 'Nordstad'. The Nordstad gathers the municipalities of Bettendorf, Colmar-Berg, Diekirch, Erpeldang-sur-Sûre, Ettelbruck and Schieren.
As in previous years, the Jugend Jobdag 2016 will take place in the multi-purpose hall "Al Seeërei" in Diekirch on Thursday, 14 April 2016 from 5 to 8 pm. It will welcome some 500 visitors and 40 exhibitors.

Youth employment - a priority
The Jugend Jobdag in Diekirch is part of a series of initiatives which aim at facilitating the entry of youngsters into the working life or their study counselling. Thus, it's in June that the traditional student fair takes place in Luxembourg-Kirchberg which gathers forward-looking employers, administrations and universities from all over the world. The National Employment Agency (ADEM) and the guidance centre Maison de l'orientation, as well as the Youth Guarantee are other organisms that help in finding the first job.
