Since the beginning of 2020, the Moscow employment service has employed more than 250 thousand Muscovites.

We have achieved such results thanks to synergy with the largest job search sites and attracting a large number of employers with relevant offers. Now the number of vacancies exceeds the number of applicants by more than 10 times. We focus on the specific life situation of each applicant. Experts identify the difficulties encountered in finding a job, help to draw up a resume, if necessary, send a candidate for an assessment of competencies and skills, vocational training and advanced training, a number of trainings focused on teaching self-employment and the development of personal competencies, ”said the deputy mayor.
