    2.5% loss in GDP is solely because of youth unemployment

    Suggested solution

    • To create a governmental – organization, which will found, develop and supervise centralizedcareer and employmentcenters in every higher educational institution. In these centers both university and government representatives will work.

    Suggested Solution


    Careers and employment centers administrative body consists of three branches

    • First Branch - Social Partnership

    • Seeks partners and makes connections with enterprises, NGOs, etc. for:

      1. Internship opportunities

      2. Job opportunities

    Careers and employment centers’ administrative body consists of three branches


    Second branch orientation programs

    1. Provides

    • Enterpreneurship courses

      2. Appropriate motivational seminars:

    • Guest Lectures

      3. Career guidance/ counseling programs

    Second Branch – Orientation programs


    Third branch research center

    • 1. Collect objective data on current labor market demands

    • 2. Makes databases, websites for job search

    • 3. Monitors graduates within 12 months s after graduation

    • We acknowledge the fact that there are career centers in some universities in the world, however our proposed solution has number of differences.

    Third Branch – Research Center


    Planned results and outcomes

    • DriftMind team is going to spend approximately 6 months to open career and employment centers

    • We expect to reach 80% employment among current students?

    • Career and Employment Centers need innovative ideas and energetic approach to work, so we believe we can employ many young university graduates ourselves.
