The webinar series continues: 3+1 tips to help you when seeking jobs

Recently looking for a job has turned into an increasingly stressful process, but it might offer some relief to hear that the secrets to a successful job hunt are only just a few essential skills. Coca-Cola Hungary’s #YouthEmpowered and Google Hungary’s Grow with Google programme have joined forces once more and launched a new online event series to help young jobseekers. During the online presentations and interactive workshops, which will be held on the 19th and 26th of October and once more on the 18th and 25th of November, participants will learn how to maintain a conscious digital presence, the importance of using their networks, as well as receive tips on the actual job seeking process. The organisers of the programme now offer some insights into the details of these online events.


1. Learn to use your network!

A good network can pave your way to success.” – says Dr. Erika Sinkó. While job seeking seems like a lonely process, it is in fact, the perfect opportunity to build our network. This will not only help us to discover new opportunities more easily, but it will also show us inspiring examples of others, which will help us to survive the darkest days of looking for a job. Networking is a skill that is easy to learn, as all of us are already part of at least one online social network. The online learning materials of #YouthEmpowered and Grow with Google’s online presentation on digital footprints can also help us to further grow and use our network.

„It might be interesting to think about what digital safety means for us. During our workshop, we will discuss the most important aspects together, and will check the digital footprints that we leave on the internet. After this, we can take the next steps and actually decide what we allow to be seen on the internet about us.” – says Gábor Balog, organiser of Google Digital Workshop.

2. Manage your time!

We have a tendency to feel like we don’t have enough time for anything. This belief can stay with us even during the period of job seeking, and for those of us who don’t have enough experience in time management, it can even intensify. If this sounds like you, all you have to do is to develop your time management skills” – explains Dr. Erika Sinkó. If we do learn to manage our time and develop a good daily routine, that will not only help us to cope better with life during this period, but it will also become an important skill in our future position. The videos of #YouthEmpowered and the practical tips of the programme’s online learning materials can help you with this as well.

3. Train yourself!

Most jobseekers would agree that the biggest challenge during these times is to stay optimistic and to maintain our enthusiasm. According to the expert of #YouthEmpowered it might help to look at job seeking as the perfect opportunity to spend time learning new skills and training ourselves for the better. Learning and developing new skills leads to fulfilment and will help us to maintain our motivation even during the more difficult periods. The online learning materials available at can be completed at one’s own pace, and therefore help those who cannot attend in person workshops due to the current situation, distance or lack of time. The online presentation organised by Grow with Google provide further help for participants with the use of digital tools, while the learning materials of Google Digital workshop help young people to learn and develop their skills as well.

+1. Stay optimistic!

According to the experiences of #YouthEmpowered, in case of young job seekers, often it’s not the lack of their professional experience or education that is halting them, but rather the lack of encouragement and optimism. This is why it is especially important to follow the ideas above, to learn to see job seeking as an opportunity for growth and the way to get closer to our dreams.

This attitude can also be learnt during the program’s interactive presentations on 26th October and 25th November. On these occasions, participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences with each other as part of an online community.
