The Careers Platform makes use of crowd-sourcing or expert contributions to populate and grow its information, as well as the way students are assisted in making informed career path decisions.
Contributions to the Careers Platform
The purpose of this Platform is not to reinvent the available information, but to consolidate 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.
