Purpose
  • Employment

AMAM Tutorials was an initiative from African Media to allow migrants who all possess a mobile phone, not a computer. The idea was to show them how to access job opportunities in the Maltese markets by themselves, by researching opportunities, contacting employees by email, and sending their CV and a motivation letter by email. They also had to create a Video CV using a mobile app video editor, which when uploaded to YouTube, could be sent to employers to showcase their communication skills. The aim of the Video CV was to tackle any natural bias from employees and migrants alike. The series of six tutorials were on “How to” formats. Although many migrants had access to Facebook on their phones, they were not aware of having an email address, as the Facebook profile was often created by a friend.

The Tutorials were distributed in several WhatsApp groups and diffused into the communities, using the means of communication more used by migrants.
