Project Description

Background

The environment where the rural students were born and brought up is not making them confident to face the tough job requirements or the hardships in life. The education that many students receive focuses on memorization of facts rather than critical thinking or analytical skills.  Students, particularly those from rural don’t have awareness or access to technology and current trends in the industry. Many students lack the confidence and communication skills to succeed at interviews, much less the career guidance to know where to search for jobs and how to apply. In short, there is a wide gap between the education that students receive and the needs and expectations of industry, resulting in a decreased number of employable candidates.
