The GPS for Your Career: career exploration, skills assessment, upskilling, and job matching all in one easy-to-use platform supporting hybrid employment services delivery for youth.
This project is made possible via partnership with Toronto-based artificial intelligence firm FutureFit AI and First Work – Ontario’s youth employment network. This innovative partnership gives young people the agency to make informed choices about high-demand career pathways to pursue, combined with a flexible model of learning and resources to ensure youth have the most relevant onramps to sustainable employment.
Navigating career advancement can oftentimes be out of reach for young people looking for survival jobs to make rent and put food on the table. This mobile-friendly platform will both enable long-term career goal setting, while providing guidance on immediate job opportunities aligned to participants’ transferrable skills to help those looking to rapidly gain employment.
The GPS for Your Career platform is a complement to the existing services provided by employment and training agencies across the province, advancing excellence in hybrid service delivery. This innovative employment service offering pairs equitable AI career assessments with the human side of social services supports, which are critical to success and retention on the job.
