Becoming employable : guiding people from exposed groups (English)
Abstract [en]

This study aimed to get a broader understanding of how job coaches in private job coaching agencies interpret the term employability and whether they perceived that the program Support and Matching contributed to increased employability of exposed groups in the Swedish labour market. Furthermore, the purpose were to investigate whether job coaches perceived a matching problem between the job-seekers and available jobs. The study is based on Bourdieu’s capital theory (1986) and habitus theory (1989), Mark Granovetter’s social network theory (1974) and Goffman’s presentation of the dramaturgical approach (1959). The study had a qualitative approach where 10 semi-structured interviews have been conducted. Our findings showed that the respondents had different views on which factors that were important for the individual to become more employable. Education, social skills and attitude were the most significant factors. However, the individual is described to be main responsible for his own employability. One area of improvement concerning their work that the respondents mentioned was the contact with the Swedish Public Employment Service.
