WBS – Web Based Job Search Support is an international project which created career guidance platforms for people looking for work. The countries involved were: Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Poland and Bulgaria. Greece and Romania also created their own version of the website and its methodology-increasing the presence of WBS websites to 8 countries. The project is funded with the support of the European Commission within the Lifelong Learning Programme (KA3, Information and Communication Technologies). Partner countries have worked together on the project; to prepare, test, implement and exploit the WBS methodology. Each country has its own version of the website, but each site shares the same methodology and objective of offering self-assessment, information and high quality online professional guidance.
The WBS partners are pleased to announce that Greece and Romania also have WBS websites:
Career guidance and jobsearch support can be successfully implemented "at a distance" by using the Internet.
The greatest benefit for career guidance can come from Web 2.0 social websites concerning career development and job search.
