Discover Your Career (DYC) has launched an online assessment platform that seeks to bridge the gap for people seeking to find the job they are best suited for.
The online assessment targets people who do not know the careers to pursue once they complete their education.
DYC works by administering a unique online assessment that will help students choose their subjects in high school
Working professionals can also get direction in career development and a way of growing in their chosen careers as well.
“There exists a great skill gap in many organizations, yet studies demonstrate that individuals whose interest matches with their career are more successful, comfortable and confident,” said Margaret Waithaka, DYC chief executive officer (CEO).
“They are more efficient in their work and display higher levels of motivation and satisfaction.”
She added: “We believe that career testing in Kenya will change the game plan. That if people choose careers based on their passion, they will be transformed and remain motivated forever.”
