COVID-19 has increased unemployment and the rising unemployment is a challenge for societies across the world. It increases the need for effective job placement efforts, but during the lockdown in Denmark, physical presence was prohibited and the job centers became digital. Right now, there is speculation that responses to COVID-19 will hasten the emergence of the future of work throughout the pandemic. Increased digitization is seen as part of this future by the municipalities, responsible for job placement in Denmark. But what are the learnings from work in the digital job center? What can we gain and loose? And what are the consequences of digital public services for potential marginalized groups as job seekers?
These are some of the questions I will address in the talk. Based on weekly interviews with 6 job consultants across 3 Danish job centers from April-June, I will present some of the experiences from work in the digital jobcenter. Please join me for a discussion on digital welfare.
