What is ASEAN JOBS ?
ASEAN JOBS is an online uture: ASEAN Youth Employment (BTF), one of the programmes of ASEAN Foundation, in a collaboration with Plan International, that is supported by Google.org. BTF itself is a two-year programme that was launched in 2020 aiming to support ASEAN youth in not only acquiring the necessary 21st century skills to (re)enter the workforce, but also building a more sustainable and secure economy post-pandemic. The programme has become a host to market-driven vocational trainings and job-matching sessions that targets vulnerable young people in the region. Additionally, a regionwide research on employment and labour market trends in the ASEAN region was conducted, covering topics such as skills that are most needed by the industries and existing barriers that creates difficulties for young people to secure a decent job.
