As of December 31st, Job Cafes operated across Seoul have assisted a total of 8,721 job seekers. This is after just 7 months since the very first Job Café opened near Hongik University Station in Seoul last May 30, 2016.
Job Cafes can be found in Jongno, Sinchon and other areas in Seoul that are near universities or are frequented by the youth, especially those that are preparing to find a job. They provide various job-related information and comprehensive employment support programs such as job counseling, career consultations, and even offer study room rentals.
Currently, Job Cafés offer ‘Employment Consultations’ which advise job seekers how to prepare to land a job in general, and ‘Employment Clinics’ which provide information on essentials such as job application forms, interviews and image consulting. They also provide employment support services that can provide practical assistance to young people, including ‘Career and Job Counseling’, ‘Resume · Cover Letter Clinic’, ‘Special Lectures on Finding a Job’, ‘Mock Interviews’ and others.
Seoul has opened 41 cafes as of the end of 2016 and plans to add an additional 50 this year.
