Jobseekers cycle to work

Jobseekers can now take part in the "Cycle to work/Hjólað í vinnuna"(Icelandic only) campaign. Jobseeker Sólmundur Már Jónsson has launched the project "Jobseekers cycle to work" where jobseekers anywhere in the country can participate and be together and form their own group. The Directorate of Labor (Vinnumálastofnun) has agreed to lend its name to the project and The National Olympic and Sports Association of Iceland has also agreed.

The idea is that jobseekers who participate in the project should start their working day by cycling, walking, running or exercising for at least 10-15 minutes. At the end of their work on job search, they do some excercise again and finish their work. Access is open to all jobseekers, but in order to register, participants must go to hjoladivinnuna.is (Icelandic only), register The Directorate of Labor (Vinnumálastofnun) as the company, the place of work as "My job - jobseekers cycle to work and for your team, you should register "Vinnan okkar" (Our job).

The cycle to work competition starts on May 5th, so make sure to register as soon as possible!
