    According to the Survey on the Employment Situation of Young Labor (15-29) conducted by the Ministry of Labor (the MOL), 51% of young workers had difficulty in finding their first job, 59% of whom were inexperienced and did not know which job they were suitable for. In order to resolve the career confusion faced by young people, the MOL strengthens youth career guidance and workplace experience opportunities from school to help young people clarify the career direction as soon as possible. To achieve this goal, the MOL has set up Youth Salons in New Taipei City, Hsinchu, Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung to provide the youth with free vocational interest tests, career counseling, corporate visits, career lectures, group courses, resume review and mock interviews. Youth Salon also links up with vocational training and employment service resources to help young people navigate their career path. In addition to Youth Salon, the public employment service institutions provide young people with “one-case one-employment specialist” customized services. Moreover, TaiwanJobs website set up a special page for the youth to provide career information, vocational training and employment services. By providing all the above services, the MOL helps young people achieve employment milestones.
