Contributions to the OZT Platform


The Platform makes use of crowd-sourcing or expert contributions to populate and grow the information used by students to make informed career decisions.

Contributions to the Careers Platform

The purpose of this platform is not to reinvent the information, but to merge what is available into a more concise and usable form. We realized that there needs to be a hands-on approach in gathering, sifting, and communicating information, rather than just duplicating what is available online. Our research has shown that even basic information on some careers are contradicting and difficult to understand by the younger students. Add this to the already dismal figure of over 70% of students not knowing how to research different careers within a specific market, then we definitely need to rethink what we present to them, and how.
