the challenges
The main goal was to conduct calibrated pre- and post-training remote assessments.
The challenge

In partnership with the Mastercard Foundation, Jobberman aims to provide Nigerian job seekers with the skills they will need to enhance their chances of securing work in an overcrowded job market and place them in dignified work. The partnership aims to train 5 million job seekers and place 3 million in dignified employment over the next five years. Training will be focused on soft skills such as emotional intelligence, business etiquette, and time management. It will be delivered online and offline for people with limited access to the internet. To initiate this project, Jobberman designed a training program to help the aspirants learn the necessary soft skills.

Jobberman team was already using iMocha for assessing candidates on their portal. So, their team

decided to leverage iMocha for the Mastercard project as well. Mastercard, Jobberman, and

iMocha teams brainstormed to select job-relevant skills and divide them into 7 categories:

  • Personal Effectiveness
  • Effective Communication
  • Employability Skills
  • Critical Thinking
  • Innovation
  • Business Etiquette
  • Team Work

iMocha along with Jobberman created pre-and post-training assessments. Mastercard Foundation

chose 4 proficiency buckets

  • Beginner
  • Intermediate
  • Proficient
  • Experienced

Candidates were assessed and provided training as per their proficiency bucket. After completion

of the training, candidates were reassessed and received certificates as per their proficiency

levels.

Step by step explanation of the workflow:

  • They did not have a large recruitment team that could reach out to these universities across the USA to participate in career fairs and interact with the students. This hampered their recruitment roadmap.
  • However, more important was the lack of technical resources to evaluate candidates who applied for this role.
