The Unemployment Insurance Fund provides mobile counselling, or MOBI, in all Estonian counties, sharing the information and knowledge needed by those looking for work.
The aim of these workshops is to share information and knowledge on various topics related to work, working life and career. Usually MOBI workshops take place at locations that are further away from larger cities, where access to labour market and career information tends to be limited. When organizing MOBI events, the topics focus among other target groups specifically on young people (including the ones currently studying in vocational schools and high schools) and people with reduced capacity to work (in the context of younger people including also their parents).
MOBI is prepared in cooperation with local authorities, schools and representatives of many relevant organizations. Having various interest groups on board while organizing the workshop gives us the opportunity to answer the most important and actual topics. Where possible, employers’ representatives are also present at the MOBI workshops.
The main topics discussed at MOBI events are the labour market situation, issues related to job-seeking, local entrepreneurial opportunities, labour market services and benefits etc. Those interested can also receive individual career counselling. During the discussion you can ask questions about issues that are important to you, listen to what others think and hear about how they have been doing at job interviews and have coped with various situations. By working together, you might come up with ideas you have not thought of on your own.
For further information about upcoming MOBI workshops, please turn to Unemployment Insurance Fund’s local offices or to municipal governments and schools. We welcome everyone who is interested in listening to and participating in discussions!
The labour market service is co-financed by the European Social Fund of the European Union by regulation No. 222 of the Minister of Health and Labour of 4 December 2014 on the basis of ‘Provision of labour market services to facilitate employment opportunities’
