Working in Hessen
Hessen is an economically strong state with a low unemployment rate. Even though Hessen offers great job opportunities, there are people who have been unable to enter the labor market for different reasons. The State’s labor-market related policy concentrates on target groups with specific problems, such as the long-term unemployed, jobless youths, single parents or those returning to the workforce.
The state of Hessen assists young people under 25 in particular, with a smooth transition from school to the professional world, with help in finding a suitable apprenticeship training position or with opportunities to retake a particular graduation certificate which offers them the prospect of earning their own living.
