We live in a fast changing world, climate change, digitization and COVID-19 are causing old industries and occupations to be disrupted & supplanted by new ones and people are looking to make lateral career changes.
The National Skills Commission has excellent information on the skills required in this changing workforce, but the website is designed for data nerds. Not Job Hunters.
CareerFinder is a simple web app to help job seekers navigate diverse career options by:
- identifying their existing skills & core competencies
- match skills to alternate occupations
- identify missing skills and training opportunities
CareerFinder navigates experienced workers to switch to a different career of their interest & graduates to land on their first career of their interest.
