Jadu Launches New Online Program to Train Students for Remote Work at No Upfront Cost

Pakistan has recently experienced a surge in unemployment of educated youth particularly due to a mismatch between the education being imparted by institutes and the skill requirement of the industry. The Covid-19 pandemic has further aggravated the condition by decreasing employment opportunities all over the country. The situation demands revolutionary measures to enhance and instill essential skills and expertise in the youth, and to link them with organizations all around the world to find remote jobs. The 4-month remote work fellowship is focused not only on developing technical skills, but also on polishing interpersonal skills essential to take a remote job.   The rigorous coursework of the program combined with practical projects will provide students with hands-on experience and prepare them to become a confident developer. The curriculum is carefully devised and reviewed by industry experts to maximize employability and to ensure learning of mandatory skills needed to bridge the overgrowing gap in education and market requirements. The global community network of the program with mentors from tech companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon etc. will allow students to develop life-long relationships with industry pioneers, and build their own professional network. The unique part of the program is the “income sharing agreement” mechanism modelled after online schools like Lambda School and Microverse. Through this model, the students will be able to enroll in the program at no cost at all and can pay back once they have received a job offer to work remotely. The active participation of youth in the program will help them build a new career path by working for international companies remotely without leaving Pakistan. This will help reduce unemployment and save the country from brain drain by retaining some of its best talent. Enrolments for the first batch are open till Jan 22, 2021. Apply at http://jadujobs.com
