Every young person today, no matter where they live, has a life goal, an aspiration to become something or achieve something. Unlike the common perception, young people have an idea of what they want to do in life. Often though, the idea of what you want to do does not translate or map correctly to real-world requirements.
This is why there is a skill gap – and drop-offs in college or MooCs. People sign up for courses and services with misinformation or wrong understanding, then realise that it’s not what they want to do with their lives or careers.
The need for career guidance and support has never been so critical, especially for the GenZ workforce, which will face the brunt of all the socio-political and technological disruptions of the decade. Students and young professionals are faced with the constant challenge of keeping up with the latest skills and industry trends and a highly competitive job market.
The skills gap has become a significant issue for both young professionals struggling to find the right information needed to navigate the rapidly changing job market, as well as companies trying to fill thousands of vacant positions.
This is where AI-powered career mentoring can play a pivotal role. Imagine a career intelligence platform that leverages AI to provide personalized guidance and recommendations to young professionals.
It’s common knowledge that the job market is constantly changing, and young professionals must upskill to stay ahead of the curve. But that’s easier said than done. An increasingly large part of the current workforce comprises GenZ, a generation that has been shaped by constant disruptions and missed the boat on building meaningful relationships with seniors & teachers, who get access to quality mentoring, irrespective of their geographical location and network.
Platforms like Adaptiv are built around the idea of personalized, data-driven, and supportive career mentoring. AI-powered recommendations help users identify skill gaps, develop new skills, and confidently navigate the job market. To make it easier for GenZ to access the guidance and support they need, we have adopted a conversational interface that is incredibly user-friendly and adapted to their penchant for texting.
👉 Users start their journey by chatting with an AI-powered career mentor and providing information about their education, skills, and aspirations.
👉 The AI assesses the user’s skills, interests, and career goals to provide tailored guidance and recommendations by tapping into the vast repertoire of human knowledge and wisdom on the Web.
This unique approach to career mentoring powered by Generative AI sets it apart from traditional mentoring methods, which often rely on a one-size-fits-all approach.
A solution like this will not only democratize access to career intelligence and enable young people to achieve their professional goals, it will eventually build a bridge between them and the industry that requires an informed and skilled workforce.
