Founder - Careal Bayo
unaware of their strengths
The platform was inspired when Founder, Ahlia Kitwana was teaching at a community college at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. While a lot of white-collar jobs shifted online easily, the essential workers still had to go out into unknown peril (at the time) in order to make ends meet. What Ahlia realized was:
Her students were unaware that they were already QUALIFIED for a slew of jobs that paid well and better than what they were earning at the time.
They were unaware of all the strengths, superpowers and transferable skills they already possessed and how to convey that to potential employers.
