How to become a job seeker

When we have understood what we want to do and are determined to find a suitable job, we bravely go into search for a new job. First of all we have to obtain the status of a job seeker. In this lesson we are going to learn how we can do it. Each country has relevant institutions that provide support and assistance to people looking for a suitable job. For example in Latvia you need to be registered in the State Employment Agency.
When the person has obtained the status of a job seeker, he/she is entitled to receive assistance and apply for aid under different support measures. The work with each job seeker is carried out individually as the aim is to facilitate a quick return to the job market.
The aim of the lesson is to provide detailed information about possibilities to obtain the status of a job seeker and benefits it provides.
