Background

FOREM's Mission
FOREM has a twofold mission:

  • An employment and training service for individuals (the organization undertakes to help the job-seeker find and land work as well as provide training based on their profile and aspirations);
  • A recruitment and employee training service for employers.

Managing job offers is therefore a core mission of this public service. To cite a few statistics5, in 2000, FOREM recorded 234,568 job-seekers, who can be categorized as follows by sex and age group:
