As kids, we thought we knew what we wanted to be as adults; we also had the answer to the question “what do you want to be in future?” even though we all picked from like only 4-5 career options.
Most of us grew up confused, realising that there was a difference between what you thought you’d enjoy doing, to what you actually enjoy doing. This is the Identity vs Role Confusion stage of Erik Erikson‘s stages of psychosocial development.
Our #BellaNaijaWCW this week Omozino Eguh wants to help children and teens still grappling with the concept of identity and self-awareness make the best decisions for their lives in terms of career choices.
She had picked the wrong course to study in the university, and she didn’t want any other child to go through this.
She founded Yudimy to do this. Yudimy’s mission is simple, “to eliminate talent mismatch and improve human capital productivity by helping people and organisations find the best career-talent fit leveraging behaviour analytics and Artificial intelligence.”
It does this for individuals through Clarity – a self-discovery tool that evaluates different aspects of an individuals behaviour and personality style and uses that data to predict suitable career-business paths, work style, weak competencies, and creates a road map of actionable steps that helps them improve their standard of living.
For businesses, Yudimy created a talent filtering algorithm that helps recruiters and employers hire people that are truly passionate about what they do and have the right work ethic, motivations and attitude to get the job done.
Through its talent navigator tool, Yudimy works with parents and learning institutions to help kids find their talent/career fit early, so they grow to live fulfilled lives and become adequately prepared for the future of work.
After her bachelors degree, Omozino spent 3 years taking courses in counselling/psychology and social sector management before founding Yudimy in 2018.
Between taking the courses and founding Yudimy, Omozino worked as a career guidance counsellor in number of firms as well as program manager for a human capacity development institution.
Yudimy has impacted thousands of students across the web, as well as thousands of hours of professional advisory services.
Omozino is a 2015 fellow of the Carrington Youth Fellowship International (CYFI) and a nominees for The Future Awards Africa (TFAA) 2019 Prize for Education.
We celebrate Omozino for helping children and teens deal with the challenge of identity and self-awareness, as well as choose a career that matches their interests and talents and we’re rooting for her!
