Information about the project
Our Future Career Guidance Tool
The youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow, and as the technology arm of the government, it is one of the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority’s responsibilities to enable them through technology to make the right decisions that align with the UAE’s vision for a self-sustainable country in a post oil economy. We focused on bridging the gap between the world of education and the employee market by creating and applying a system which enabled youth ages 16-18 to become ambitious, determined and well prepared for their future careers. The “Our Future Career Guidance Tool”, was carefully developed and engineered to cater the needs of the evolving nation of the UAE in specific and the world as a whole. With the help of the Ministry of Human Resources, the system has been fed with valuable information with regards to the market needs, and in collaboration with the Ministry of Education we reached out to the many students in this country. As a result, the system has enriched and enabled the youth in the UAE region to become successful people once they start pursuing their careers, overcoming issues such as unemployment, low expert rates, and overall employee performance. It removed the uncertainty and hesitation amongst students and put them on correct career paths at a young age.
