Beyond the simple need for food or housing, homeless people especially need consideration to help them regain confidence, to move forward in life and finally break the terrible spiral ofexclusion. And this consideration often comes from finding a job to flourish on a professional level.
Theemployment is indeed the best lever to help the homeless reintegrate into society. And despite the preconceived ideas that can sometimes be made, we must know that today, 24% people SDF working. To see this figure change, it is imperative that employers, and more generally, the general public, begin to change their perspective on people in precarious situations.
So, to help the homeless to find a job to reintegrate into society, the association entourage collaborated with the association TBWA Paris to put in place LinkedOut (Of course you included the reference to LinkedIn), an extremely easy-to-access digital platform that makes it possible to share the CV people in precariousness looking for a job to offer them unprecedented visibility and finally opportunities.
The project was launched with about twenty candidates whose you can discover thehistory and the motivations. But the ambition of the project does not stop there: a course was also designed to support candidates throughout their job search and once they are in position. The candidate will be prepared by a volunteer coach which will help him to respond to job opportunities and to make his mark in a new job.
LinkedOut is a nice initiative supported by theRANDSTAD Institute and who makes full use of the power of digital technology to fight the exclusion of people in great precariousness and offer them access to employment. In terms of branding, the idea of diverting the name from LinkedIn, the number one social network in the world, is particularly symbolic and well thought out to highlight those who have nothing and who are simply looking for a job to change their lives. You will find more information on the official site of the project LinkedOut.
