Intellectual Output 1
The idea of the Intellectual Output 1 of the Gen Y’s Guide project was to carry out an international scientific and analytical study of the current status of cross-sectoral recruitment and job searching trends in Europe. The Intellectual Output 1 was designed, created, and disseminated in close collaboration with other partners of the GenY’s Guide project: Novancia Business School and Universum Global. 

In order to better effectuate the given study, three separate surveys were created:

Employer Survey:
The aim of the Employer Survey was to analyse the recent European trends in recruiting university graduates by NGOs, private, and public sectors. Recruitment trends within these three sectors will be analysed separately, recruitment experts and talent acquisition leaders from each sector will be interviewed to identify the newest recruitment sources and strategies. The results will be collected and published in a report.

Career Centers’ Survey:
The aim of the Career Centers’ Survey is to conduct a research into the methods used by university career centers to enhance youth employability. After collecting data on job seeking strategies of students and recruiting activities of various organizations, there rose a need to look at the third source - Career Centers. Career centers have the advantage of working with both parties - employers and students - and a survey on their activities is a valuable asset to conducting a thorough study. This research mainly focuses on identifying the use of social media and technology in supporting employability of students.

After the collection of the required data, an analytical report on the current status of recruitment trends in Europe will be published. The aim of the report is to link together the collected data, making it available and useful to students.
