EvenMe!, has announced the roll out of their second phase of development. The online portal looks bridges the gap allowing and school leavers, graduates, unemployed youth and entrepreneurs, to find sustainable employment.

For the second phase of development the portal partnered with CPS Technologies and Star Schools who worked closely with EvenMe’s Jill Young and Gavin Jones to develop a sophisticated backend for the portal. Now delivering a series of carefully curated, interactive user journeys aimed to address each users specific needs, Phase 2 of the platform is giving users a much more efficient route to the information they need, which means it lessens the burdens of data usage and it makes their experience that much more personalised.

First launched in December 2015 as a platform for the youth to interact, connect and learn as a highly tangible resource where young South Africans could get the tools and know-how they needed to secure sustainable jobs or entrepreneurial income streams.

EvenMe! co-founder, Jill Young said that “The first 6-months of being live gave us immensely valuable insight into what the critical gaps were and what kind of real support our youth need in order to step-up and live their best lives.”

CPS Technologies chief operating officer Eugene Weimers explains that “Whether it’s compiling a CV, finding out how to open a bank account, or applying to study at a tertiary institution, we have succeeded in presenting the EvenMe! users with easy to navigate journeys that effectively empowers young people to make the most of the opportunities life presents to them.”

EvenMe! users are now required to register (or re-register if they had already registered during phase 1) to enable the portal to better understand who they are.  After registration they complete a questionnaire which allows the system to get to know what they are looking for – first-time job seeking, entrepreneurial tips, career boosting advice or more.  Once the registration has taken place, the user will have a personalised dashboard geared just for them.

Comprised with a total of more than 1000 user journey process and a comprehensive learner management system (LMS) for high school learners, developed by education service provider Star Schools. EvenMe! is hoping their innovative tool can help young South Africans build a future.
