We designed and built Ise the Job Bot, a smart edtech/eLearning driven chatbot as a Work Readiness/Career Coaching Chatbot and it is the first of its kind in Africa. It provides answers to an array of inquiries made from it by users on various aspects of Career Growth, Job Search and Work Readiness. The Chat Bot is integrated into our website and adopts Facebook Messenger as its platform to engage its users in conversations who are mainly undergraduates, Nigeria Youth Corpers, unemployed/underemployed Graduates and working professionals.
Ise leverages AI/Machine Learning methodologies of Natural Language Processing/Natural Language Understanding of Deep Learning and Algorithms from queries received and data fed to it by humans (users) to help them search for Jobs, inform them about new & open job opportunities and coaches them for interviews. It was developed under strict supervision and it’s adherent to international best practice. Its Beta testing Phase has proved that the bot can handle several complex conversations, its Conﬁdence Level, Cross-Validation and Precision Scoring are satisfactory.
The Rise Labs is an innovation driven space dedicated to solving some of the everyday problems facing young people in Africa with unemployment & its attendant employability skills gap being our major priority. We are targeting undergraduates, Youth Corpers, Unemployed young Graduates, the junior employees and management executives of SMEs, mid-level firms and large corporations. The Rise Labs will equip this population with the capacity to compensate Employers/Organizations with not just the employee’s exceptional capabilities but also with the skills required to be effective at work and this has been particularly appealing to many Organizations.
The Rise Labs embodies a sustained social impact construct and the key to our success is providing quality work readiness, skill development and job placement related services with the use of modern technologies by a close knit team of high performing, visionary and committed individuals.
