Description of the practice

Labour Market Integrated System is a database of all existing jobs in the Slovak labour market, as well as counselling tools that are useful for finding a job corresponding to educational attainment, experience, knowledge and skills of the website user. ISTP has been operating since 2003. The reason for its creation was high unemployment, which necessitated the need to improve and optimize advisory and brokerage services of labour offices. For this purpose, a free publicly accessible portal was created that offers to unemployed on-line access to their labour potential diagnosis and follow-up search of adequate job vacancies. It was also an appeal to employers to publicly articulate their requirements and demands for qualified workforce.
