Explain your idea in details:

The main objective of this initiative is to reduce the number of unemployed youths in the society, which would be done by bridging the lacuna between employers and employees. To begin this, three vital things would be put into place:1. An online community would be created for employees to register. This community would need prospective employees to provide their qualifications and the kind of job they desire. This community would also be interactive, for prospective employees to gain knowledge from each other. 2. The community would create a relationship with companies in need of these employees and with organisations where these employees fit into, so as to connect them with suitable candidates for the available jobs in their organisation. The major difference between this community and other job sites is that those in this community would have a greater advantage as there would be an already established relationship between these companies and the community3. The community would involve in constant training of its members! Registered members would have free courses on leadership and workplace qualities that would make them better prepared and suited for available jobs.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

The targeted Sdgs are poverty reduction and Decent work and Economic growth. I believe both are actually interrelated. If decent work can be provided for qualified candidates, there would be reduction in poverty and consequently, economic growth! Unfortunately, I've seen people qualified for much more, doing so much less. I've seen graduates with the wisdom and energy to contribute to economic growth, reduced to manual labourers, doing menial jobs. This community would go a long way in eliminating such by connecting qualified employees to suitable jobs. In keeping tab with our success rate, we would have the following goals span over a period of five years. 1. To get at least 500,000 thousand registered applicants within 5 years (This rate is subject to change, depending on the general response to the program) 2. To achieve 80% employment of registered applicants in 5 years. 3. To achieve 100% quality education program for members of the community within a period of 5 years. I do believe that this success rate would tell a great deal on the economy when achieved and would go a long way in poverty reduction. When this success rate is achieved in a period of five years, higher targets would be set for a longer period of time. We aim that by 2030, The Labour Market Forum would be One of the major mobilisers of Labor in the system. This is achievable with clear goals and execution of these goals.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Like earlier stated, the beginning part of this idea would be the creating of an online community. The community must be one of integrity , humongous enough to accommodate it's members and reliable to protect the information of members. After the online community is created, there would be need to get people to register and create detailed profiles. Sensitisation would be a major tool for this idea to materialise. It would need mass publicity. Fortunately, the social media avails us the suitable ground for this publicity. So using the social media as a tool, we would create awareness of the community and get people to register. For financing the project, we would rely on grants, partnerships and proceeds from enhanced mentoring sessions. Although most of the mentoring classes would be free, there would be an optional indept session for those who need extra work to improve their marketplace skills.

Your profile

I am 24 years old (born 22nd November, 1994), an indigene of Delta state, Nigeria. My motivation springs from personal experience of the dangers which ignorance of opportunities in the Labour world brings. Although I was qualified for many jobs, I was unable to lend my talents to any because I was unaware of them and most were inaccessible to me. Thus many opportunities slipped through my fingers. I believe this to be the case of many qualified young people who are qualified for many opportunities but are unaware of them and are unable to access them. This is why I have undertaken this task. They've been times before when I've had to engage in similar situations. Once, my passion for education drove me to volunteer for some NGOs which desired to further quality education for young people. I passionately contributed my quota to that course. I do believe I can bring the same passion to this vision.

Very pragmatic approach to the issue of unemployment. I do believe that from such innovations, a high number of unemployed (and underemployed) people will gain access to gainful employment suitable to their abilities and prestige

Excellent idea Emmanuel!
Bridging the gap between employers and employee is a great one. This will help check and reduce unemployment rate amongst youth and I strongly believe when implemented will produce great results.

Enebeli, when you talk about the labour market I think of my own country. Please ensure that your project covers east Africa and yonder. We produce graduates but nobody produces jobs for them. Please support me with my idea @ https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/24/13531 thank you

May 21, 2019 18:06

Wonderful idea, Emmanuel. This will go a long way to tackle the unemployment crisis we are facing as a nation. I only hope this idea would be supported and not thrown aside.

I advise you to start partner with other organizations that seek to achieve the same feat... Success Emmanuel.... I support you

May 21, 2019 17:00

Hello Emma

I am trying to understand the practicability of this idea from an employer's point of view especially the cooperate world.

From your idea, you think the cooperate employers would rather get to know more of an employee to be from an online interaction platform than on a physical basis? From the pilot studies carried out, what is their thought on this?

In my opinion, this platform would work best for employers seeking casual & not so highly professional employees like waitresses, sales personnel among others and not high level positions. In turn, its these kind of people that lack or are not so exposed to employment opportunities

May 21, 2019 16:55

Thanks for putting youths into consideration.

It's an online platform. What plans do you have for those in the grassroots.

Those that are not online.
Those that lack access to smartphones and the rest?

I'd also love to be a part of your community. I hope there is room for all.

Best wishes dear.

May 21, 2019 15:46

Emmanuel,a beautiful idea you have got here and i hope to see it come into realisation. Tackling unemployment in your community and country is a laudable one.

This is a wonderful idea I hope if given d chance will reduce the rate of unemployment in our society and also help bridge the gap between the employees and the employers.
I pray this idea get to win. Big ups bro.

It is so interesting to see how innovative the youths of this nation are, irrespective of the economic situation and I believe ideas like this one should receive a world recognition and applaud to encourage others. Thanks.

This is an amazing piece. Keep up the good work bro. More wins. Indeed, awareness and accessibility are the two major barriers standing against the efficient use of our intelligent youths. A program such as this which can bridge that gap will not only go a long way in fostering economic development but also promote innovation in various professional fields.

Samuel

May 20, 2019 10:44

Indeed this is a great approach,I strongly believe this can be implemented if the youths of today stands out and work towards this, many have this idea but fear of the masses and lack of support from the government . God bless your idea brother you're indeed a motivational speaker. I support your motion.

There are a lot of unemployed youths today that can benefit from ideas like this. Opportunities are always available but the platform to bring employers to prospective employees is most time lacking. This idea does that. It should be supported.
