In the next decade, one billion young people will enter the global labor force. We want to empower them with better data on learning and career pathways.
When jobseekers navigate labor markets, they often find it difficult to translate their experience into marketable skills. Lack of accessible and useful information makes career ladders in low- and middle-income countries particularly slippery.
As jobseekers try to climb up to better opportunities, they frequently fall back into low-wage work, informal self-employment, or unemployment. This traps them in poverty and exacerbates existing inequalities. Women are often particularly disadvantaged.
