This announcement was initially posted on the CO.CAREERS Good Jobs Search Engine.
Job dissatisfaction and unemployment have been rampant and growing even before the pandemic. People are stressed with their job search and reskilling/upskilling needs, especially within specific audiences like first-generation nationals, neurodivergent individuals, and resilient people from neighborhoods with little community assets and accessible supports.
The CO.CAREERS platform is built to enable a low-effort user experience for people of all walks of life through a context-aware search engine that displays good jobs while promoting upskilling through easy-to-understand and consume career content created to promote future-proof jobs to diverse communities.
Founded by Ali Jaffar and backed by purpose-driven digital agency Key Medium, CO.CAREERS and its award-winning team are on a mission to make it easy to connect people and organizations in your community with a private talent network and up-to-date practical career resources.
Their vision is to see a world where everyone can achieve economic opportunity—without asking them to sacrifice their values to achieve work-life balance and get the pay they deserve.
Job seekers looking for better opportunities, new industries, or completely different roles can use CO.CAREERS
Discovering a career that excites with benefits, appreciates values, and prioritizes work-life balance matters, but it can be very stressful.
Changing jobs is one of the most stressful life experiences an individual (and their family) can face. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average tenure is 4.1 years, with some industries, such as hospitality, having the lowest median tenure at 2.3 years. And changing to a different line of work may require completely uprooting your day-to-day and starting to balance job searches and taking interviews while caring for an infant child. Changing jobs ranks on the Holmes-Rahe Life Stress Inventory as more stressful than taking on a new mortgage or facing foreclosure. As such, job seekers may benefit from a low-effort user experience that subtly encourages options for upskilling or even reskilling for a different line of work for a career that suits their lifestyle.
