After the success of last year’s event, this year we will again hold “The Experience Work Day” to give young candidates the chance to get in the shoes of the Adecco Group employees.

On April 24th, youngsters all over the world will have the chance to shadow Adecco Group employees for one day.

On 24 April, young students and graduates will spend a day in the shoes of the Accounting Manager, a Generic Recruiter, one of our Payroll Executives and many other of the wide variety of roles of our colleagues.

The transition from school to work and making a decision that affects their future careers is one of the most challenging and critical phases in young people’s lives. With the high youth unemployment globally, the rapid changes in the structure of work, the new skill requirements from employers and the increasing uncertainty, that transition has become even more challenging.

The best way to get a job is to through experience. However, experience is precisely what the overwhelming majority of school leavers lack. Most have had no exposure to the labour market, and many have little idea about their future careers, the options available to them or indeed what kind of profession best suits their skills, personalities and aspirations.

To help young people find a direction, The Adecco Group has introduced ‘Experience Work Day’ – a once a year opportunity to visit an Adecco office and gain invaluable guidance on careers, job hunting, applications and interviews.

Participants will be able to shadow The Adecco Group employees in the departments and roles of their choice, getting to know the opportunities of working life, the variety of career paths available, and gaining a first-hand experience of what specific jobs look like.

Insights and advice will be given by job placement experts. The sessions will include CV clinics, social media identity assessment, coaching to master professional interviews and seminars to assess and orient the development of the key skills required in today’s labour market. Participants will also learn about the large variety of job opportunities, internships and work-based training opportunities offered by The Adecco Group itself.
