Breaking into the job market

The GIZ in Albania offers young people a variety of training programs via the German Information Centre on Migration, Vocational Training and Careers (DIMAK). The hands-on training makes it easier for them to break into the jobs market. They spend four weeks learning the basics in fields such as tourism and gastronomy. They welcome hotel guests, make the beds in the rooms and serve meals in the dining room – and in the process learn how to get things done while using their own initiative and how to present themselves as competent and willing to help. After completing the training they are awarded with a certificate. The training programs form part of the "Returning to New Opportunities" programme run by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). They are aimed both at returnees as well as locals who are looking for new opportunities.
