With limited access to jobs, career advice and little or no feedback on applications, job seekers need a solution that encompasses all of these challenges.

Whether you are at a fresh graduate, junior professional or senior management level of your career, there are major similarities in what you are looking for, and hoping to achieve.

Sarah, 24, graduated in January this year. As soon as she got her transcript, she started the searching for a job. Almost 6 months down the road, only a few of her friends have a job. The rest are like her, still searching. She is happy to do anything at this point. Truth be told, she is not even particularly looking for a paying job. Obviously, that would be nice, but something to grow her skill set, gain her experience and make her CV look ‘good’ is what she is really looking for.

James, 27, is making 2 years at his current job. It is also his first job. In those 2 years, he managed to get a Master’s Degree while working. He is not doing too shabbily, but he wants more. He wants to join a big corporation and move up the proverbial job ladder. He wants a salary raise. He feels it is about time he bought himself a car, and maybe a piece of land. He plans to build a house in the near future.

Katherine, 33, is the head of a department at a small but growing organization. Her firstborn is sitting for P.7 examinations this year. She has her eye on the position of C.E.O in her organization.

What Sarah, James and Katherine have in common is that they are all looking for opportunities for a new job, a better job or a new management challenge to build their careers.

If the employment statistics are an indicator, it is not only difficult to get a job, it is also difficult to move up the ladder on your own. With limited access to jobs, few trusted sources of career advice, little or no feedback on applications, among others, job seekers need a solution that encompasses all of these challenges, and Fuzu is that solution.
