Share Article

TUcareers an analytics based platform for career decision making has been launched. Targets users in emerging economies (like India) who are looking at global education and career options.

TUcareers (http://www.tucareers.com) brings an analytic rigor into the personal sphere for career and education related decision making. Utilizing "Success Analytics" a predictive framework, the platform helps discover the best set of career and education options for both career starters and experienced career professionals looking for a change. The platform leverages the knowledge base of O*NET (occupation network for USA), the largest open occupational information system in the world, however with a unique model driven approach, targets users outside USA who could benefit immensely.

Mohit Bhatnagar the lead researcher and developer for the platform explains “Career Decision making is a fairly mature area of research in the developed world; however in countries like India, very limited research exists. Given that almost half of India’s 1.25 billion population is under 24 there is an urgent need for decision tools that can help individuals build the right skills and choose their vocations more intelligently”. He further elaborates that “given the significant rise of cross border workers, economic progress and the rising demand for foreign education (esp. in USA) a platform like TUcareers can be a valuable decision support for those looking for global education and career opportunities”.

Build on published research as part of O*NET and other career and decision theories, the heuristics behind the TUcareers platform ensure an optimal environment map that gives an individual maximum chance of success and continued growth, learning and job satisfaction.
Some of the value added offerings the platform provides are

  •              The most comprehensive multi-trait assessment based on the O*NET taxonomy
  •              A predictive framework for critical decision parameters like satisfaction, tenure and earnings
  •              Heuristics with expert judgment and machine learning for fine tuning of recommendations
  •              Rich navigation and exploration tools
  •              A model driven approach which enhances environmental learning by the decision maker

For expanding the usage of the platform in US , TUcareers is looking for collaboration with qualified vocational counselors. TUcareers also plans to take its offerings to colleges in USA who could white label the assessments for recommending courses and can also utilize the platform in attracting more foreign students.
