Profilum helped more than 700,000 teenagers to discover new educational opportunities and embark on their career journeys, and supported them along the way by providing individual recommendations and expert guidance.
The company provides parents, schools, and local authorities with a set of online and offline innovative services of its own design for assessment and development of human capital. The cornerstone of them are digital tools and methodologies for the study of individual’s personality (such as interactive psychometric tests), and of labor and education markets (including big data and in-depth analytics). As data on the career and educational opportunities and risks are matched with teenagers’ predispositions, values, passions and skills, they receive tailored advice on further steps optimal for their self-development. This includes not only specific recommendations, but also decision-making support from tutors and industry experts.
As part of this process, Profilum provides schools with tools for conducting effective dialogue with teenagers and parents and systematic work on career guidance, such as advanced training courses for teachers, tutors and career consultants. Teachers and school directors get access to Profilum analytical platform that helps them monitor and analyze the goals, progress and struggles of their students. In total more than 3,400 schools have partnered with Profilum and built a career navigation system using the company’s solutions.
Profilum also helped 19 regions in CIS countries to build a comprehensive system for support of personal education and career development by adjusting them to the specifics of local human capital and labor market. This was achieved, for instance, by introducing career literacy courses tailored to the region’s tasks.
To sum it up, the career counseling methodologies and tools developed by Profilum have a high replicability, as they can be applied by various types of entities (both local and national, commercial and public) for assessment and development of human capital. These solutions are adaptable and easy to use: they don’t require special skills and additional investment and can be used immediately after purchase.
Profilum products contribute to the implementation of several UN SDGs, and especially of the Goal 4 (“Quality education”), Goal 8 (“Decent Work and Economic Growth”) and Goal 11 (“Sustainable Cities and Communities”), as they help people increase their quality of life by finding a better place in it. They also help authorities to improve the local education and career guidance systems, which has both short-term and long-term positive implications for the society, including such groups as women and people with special needs.
All in all, Profilum considers its social mission as a facilitator that helps individuals and organizations increase people’s quality of life and the overall sustainability of the society.
