Orientación laboral

Employment orientation

ASIME has been a Collaborating Centre of the Public Employment Service since 2001, developing its mission through a multidisciplinary work team made up of four guidance technicians and two support units spread throughout the Galician territory.

The main objectives of the service are: to provide labour guidance and to promote the generation of employment in less developed economic sectors as an essential step for the autonomy of the applicants and their integration into society; as well as to favour the labour insertion of the unemployed through creating Personalised Insertion Itineraries (PII’s).

To achieve these objectives, the guidance technicians direct their efforts not only to carry out the tasks of information and guidance, but also to expand, continuously improve and consolidate the Training and Employment department, both in quality and quantity, to be able to respond to the recent labour demand.

In this effort for continuous improvement we have the generation of the Orientation module on our website as a working tool oriented to the use and adaptation of new technologies and their possibilities focused on optimising existing resources for the search for employment and to promote the benefits of the information society aimed at the group of job seekers.

It is a fast and agile tool that compiles and selects all that information, both labour and relevant training, in the search for employment and which is collected by technicians from various sources such as: websites of public entities, centres that manage training for both unemployed and active workers, associations, job exchanges, job search engines, press, job blogs and so on.
