Summary of the Problem
This is a description of the problem situation. What kind of people mission better if this problem is solved? The main problem is unemployment and distribution of information about jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities. Passive citizens that during the time stopped looking for a job, citizens that are not using internet portals, newspapers (mainly people living in rural areas).
This should provide an outline of the basic need that would solve the above problem. We want to bring the information to the citizens through the tools that they already use and that is widely available.
Technology to Solve the Problem
Areas of technology that you believe have the potential to solve this problem? (eg mobile devices, social networks, geospatial technology, etc.). Creating a user-friendly sms platform and/or smartphone application for pushing information to the users through automatic notifications based on categories of interest, skills and education. Users will be able to interact with the platform by “uploading” mini CV (just text) and react to the information received about jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities in form of short textual interview. Employers can upload job opportunities through a web platform or sms.
What other information could help technologists working on this idea? Other events are in progress.
Once a potential solution has been developed, what is your plan of action to implement it? Once we establish the platform with short number we will promote it in national employment agencies, markets in rural areas, youth centers, pubs, cafes, public spaces, bus stations, promotion through mobile operator-s channels (bills, bulk sms, prepaid cards manual). At first coorporate with already established portals and job agencies to share opportunities.
