We helped America’s young professionals get on the way to work.
In the United States, the unemployment rate for those under 24 years old is 15 percent, nearly double the national average. As a result, millions of careers have been cut short before they’ve even started, and the professional aspirations of many young workers remain out of reach.
On April 30, Adecco offices throughout the United States opened their doors to help bring this situation to a close. We hosted Way to Work™ careerathons where we provided personal, hands-on job hunting and career advice to young professionals.
In Detroit and Los Angeles – two cities with some of the highest unemployment rates in the nation – we took our Way to Work careerathons out of the office and to the streets. Hundreds of young workers joined us at Wayne State University and the Santa Monica Place Mall for help finding the path to a great job.
We are grateful for the opportunity to meet with so many talented, inspiring and motivated young professionals, and we look forward to leading the way to work in the United States every day.
