Representatives of the employment center commented on the prospects on the labor market in the coming years
In Uzhgorod city employment center, there was a "round table" on "Relevant issues of employment of persons with additional guarantees in employment. The strategy of modernization and development of the employment service for the period of 2016-2020."

It is somewhat difficult, but people want to do it because there are visible results. In general, people are actively interested in the labor market, their employment. However, there are those who are not really interested in finding a real job."
