Support for job-seekers: a challenge for universities. Perspectives for university libraries

Support for job-seekers is one of the priorities of the university reforms currently underway. The creation of new job-seeker support offices (BAIPs) is intended to strengthen and improve the coordination of current services, which are insufficient and have little input from university libraries. These new offices should play a key role alongside current careers information services (SCUIO-IPs), providing training in documentation research, information on careers, help in writing CVs and letters of application, and foreign language skills.
