The biggest complaint from employers around the world is the lack of relevant sector skills among new graduates entering the workforce. This is even more the case with Pakistani youth. According to Trading Economics, Pakistan has a youth unemployment rate of 8.54%, with women making up only 18.8% of employees (according to the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics)
Jadu aims to become a launching pad for quality tech talent. The program offers a 4-month technical scholarship filled with technical and professional skills and mentorship from global industry leaders, open to anyone curious to learn.
The Jadu Fellowship Program is based on a rigorous 4 month Front-End Web Development program with interactive online learning, group projects and homework, with community building, exercises to promote teamwork in order to simulate a professional working environment.
Pakistani universities rarely offer student counseling, and the concept of peer mentoring is totally new to students and to many staff. The presence of the extended family is supposed to take charge of any support for students outside of the traditional educational offer. However, the needs of students are changing. The modernization and expansion of higher education, new learning and teaching strategies, and social changes all have an impact on the student experience. It pays to network with peers and mentors in your industry. Jadu brings in international mentors, industry leaders to mentor fellows on topics such as personal branding, critical thinking, effective communication and salary negotiation, etc.
A typical Jadu scholar would spend his week learning from some of the best mentors in the tech industry. On top of that, they would have live coding sessions where they could learn how to create a product from scratch. In addition, they would learn from their peers through 1: 1 sessions and share their thoughts in the form of weekly blogs or social media posts. All of these activities would help the fellow to develop habits to become industry ready tech professionals so that they can find an internship or employment at an early stage.
Globally, there will be a shortage of 85 million tech workers by 2030, resulting in an annual loss of revenue of $ 8.5 trillion. Companies like Jadu provide a necessary service for today’s economy.
