Are you a career advisor?
Are you a job seeker?
Emotional Employmentis an Erasmus+ project that providesalternative skills and resources to support job seeking.
Emotions influence everything we do. Our actions are influenced by our thoughts, which are influenced by our emotions.
Emotions have a big part in how we handle different situations. If we have a bad job interview, we might be sad or angry about it. These emotions, might then have a negative impact on how we feel about our next job interview. In order to manage these emotions, we have to learn how to recognise them and use them to our advantage.
The consortium want to offer solutions by showing how to apply Emotional Intelligence (EI) tools, skills and strategies for career advisors and job seekers.
Studies have found that organisations with high Emotional Intelligence have increased productivity, higher engagement levels, lower turnover and absenteeism rates and increased market share.
Emotional Employment is a European project that is funded by Erasmus+ programme. It is coordinated by Merseyside Expanding Horizons.
There are six different organizations from five European countries working on this project:
