PEPTalk 5: defining skills objectively with MYSKILLS at German PES

How to get an objective picture of a jobseeker’s skills?

German PES Bundesagentur für Arbeit launched their new project MYSKILLS to be able to chart professional skills and competencies. The main target groups are:

  • people without formal qualifications but with years of professional experience
  • people with qualifications but with a large experience gap
  • people with foreign qualifications that are not recognized in Germany, including refugees

With objective knowledge about their skills and competencies in hand, refugees and other jobseekers can find suitable and sustainable work faster.
