Welcome to Career Manager

ingredients of success

Mobile ENG

Basic proposition

Career Manager is first and foremost a performance tool aimed at career development, but was designed to be implemented as a business and currently requires a business partner to make this happen.

Career Manager is primarily a technology based career counselling and mentorship system which was developed to assist young people in becoming employable. The software assists learners with the process of career planning and subject selection. It also offers a mentorship component. If used in the correct manner, it almost guarantees employability.

However, to implement this process in schools in the entire country we believe business resources, skills and methods need to be brought to bear. We as the developers are not well equipped to establish and conduct the business. We hope to find a suitable business partner for this aspect.

The purpose of this page is to explain this

The various parties involved in a career planning and mentorship business will be listed to illustrate the operation of Career Manager.

Then a special focus will be given to a suitable business partner for Career Manager .

The key argument is that a competent business partner will benefit all the other parties and gain advantage for him/herself.

That is the gist of this presentation. What follows is detail on the roles of parties involved, and some detail numbers.

The Business Role : a key ingredient

As was mentioned above, the above parties need to be organised, mobilised and coordinated to ensure the larger scale deployment of Career Manager .

We propose this is done by a business partner.

The introduction of a business partner, responsible for Business establishment (turning CM into a business), expands the picture above to become the picture below

Business partner contribution : establishment of a business, coordinating parties involved in a way that allows CM to be implemented on large scale
