The youth unemployment crisis

« We have to overcome the crisis of youth unemployment in Spain. A lot of young people don’t know where to look for work when they finish their studies. But people need a push—because sometimes we attribute all our challenges to the crisis, and that makes it hard for us to move forward. »

Why Generation

« I didn’t know what to expect from this program, but even in the first few days I’ve learnt a lot. I’m having a great time and I’m really motivated to finish the course with flying colors! It’s an amazing opportunity. »

Why digital marketing

« Just about all the job opportunities I’ve seen lately have a digital element to them—so this course is exactly what I need to adapt to the job market. What appeals to me about digital marketing is the opportunity to be creative and to work collaboratively in a team to generate great solutions. »

Where she is now

Laura got a job at a school following her graduation from Generation. More than two years later, she still works there and has progressed into an administrative role managing a student dormitory. While she didn’t go into digital marketing, she reflects back on Generation as a positive experience that expanded her skill set and helped energize her career search.
