High Opportunity for Mediterranean Executive Recruitment, HOMERe, is an intra-Mediterranean Internship Mobility scheme oering companies in search of new business perspectives a unique opportunity for sourcing young talents from the Euro-mediterranean region to become their interns. It promotes internship mobility between Mediterranean countries, and is predominantly aimed at high-profile students in their last year of study before graduation. The objective is to ease their transition from the academic environment to qualified entry-level roles in their own country – in a region where youth unemployment often increases with the level of education.

The project aims to tackle youth unemployment and underemployment and help those taking part in the project to secure a graduate position that is relevant to their qualifications and is in their own country.

HOMERe is promoted within the framework of the "Mediterranean Initiative for Jobs (Med4Jobs)". Med4Jobs is a cross-sector initiative driven by the need for an integrated regional initiative in the area of job creation. The initiative was developed by the UfM Secretariat to help increase the employability of youth and women, close the gap between labour supply and demand and foster a culture of entrepreneurship and private sector development.
