Prokaziea App, Experts Tip Job Seekers On Skills Development

Employers prefer employing lowly educated people with skills other than people high end academic papers but with no skills, human resource experts revealed at KCCA Employment Bureau Center during an activation drive by ProkaziEA.

ProKaziEA is a mobile phone Application (App) which brings together employers and talented job seekers in East Africa offering them internship and employment opportunities. It can also be access on the web here. You can download the App on Google Play here.

Godwin Ocen the CEO of Prokaziea explained that the objective of the App is to connect employers and job seekers not only in Uganda but in East Africa. This means that someone using the App has an opportunity to work in five East African countries.

The project he said was finded by GIZ through incubator for Integration Development of East Africa (IIDEA) and YouMatch Global Initiative on innovative Employment Services for youth, and CEFORD and Kampala Capital City Authority.

The activation at KCCA Employment Bureau Center attracted employers from the manufacturing, financial institutions, recruting agencies, government agencies, telecoms and others.

“We must put emphasis on skills development than academic papers. What is the importance of a degree that you own if you cannot even portray what it says,” one employer questioned unemployed youths who had gathered at the activation.

“We should focus on what we need to do to get money rather than focusing on money. The challenge with young people is bad attitude and lack of commitment,” another potential employer counseled.

The management of ProKaziEA was encouraged to market the App so that many young people benefit from it.

“The information gap is a factor in causing unemployment in Uganda. People lack information. Make sure people get to know this information (about Prokaziea) so that some of the youths not here can know about it and use it.”

Many young people who have used the App are already undergoing training with a possibility of being retained. Job seekers who download the App, create accounts on the App stand a chance to get internship and employment opportunities.

With the App, talented job seekers are able to intellact with potential employers, upload their CVs, browse job opportunities. The App gives them real time opportunity to learn about job openings.
