Careermap consists of a jobs board listing vacancies for school leavers. It also provides quality information about careers and qualifications via its publications (Careermag and Careermag for Parents), blog, videos and newsletter. Careermap also provides a wide range of interactive sessions for schools, guest speakers and events.
The UK’s youth labour market has seen the biggest transformation than any other aspect of employment. Young people are vital to the UK job market and enhancing their opportunities through career advice and guidance is essential as is helping them to acquire marketable skills.
When Careermag for Parents launched back in April, we were unsure of what to expect. Reaching out to parents and guardians can be challenging as the audience is always changing. However, the feedback from the launch overwhelmingly showed the value of factual and independent information so we created Careermag for Parents 2.
