This is the Proyectatufuturo app, which has a series of options in which young Peruvians will find information necessary to guide their educational and work path.
“Many young people, after making a great effort to finish school or university, must then confront a different reality and therefore they look for information that allows them to find what they are looking for. This application goes in that way,” said the general director of Professional Training and Labor Training of the MTPE, Eximio Cotrina.
He said that thousands of young people are looking for a job every year, but do not know where and how to prepare to access it. That is why “Project Your Future” wants to gather the best job offers for them and offer them in a support that is familiar to them, that is, the cell phone.
The app has options for those who “only study”, “study and work”, and those who “only want to be trained because they already have a career or experience” that allows them to work. It is a platform where you can find courses and training, some totally free and others paid.
Four search areas
The platform has four major areas: Discover yourself, Train yourself, Learn and Get Oriented.
“In Descubbrete there is information on vocational aspects, while Capacítate allows you to identify your job skills, as well as the various training offers,” said Byron Chávez, of the Information and Communications Technologies office of the MTPE, in charge of designing the application.
You can get information offers details about the country’s labor landscape, what companies demand and the salaries offered by various economic activities, while Orient details what are the rights and duties that assist a worker, the various ways of how to certify the work experience that one has, as well as important recommendations to stay in a job.
“This application is free and designed for Android phones. The iOS version will be ready in January,” Chavez added.
For the older ones
“This platform will be adapted to the needs of the labor market to give more attention to people who have already stopped working but want to continue working and seek to be always trained. Here you can also find information that can help them in this regard. Right now there is already very valuable information for them,” said Cotrina.
He added that the information that is exposed in the mobile platform comes from the various programs that are part of the Ministry of Labor, such as Impulsa Perú (self-employment and entrepreneurship) and productive youth (labor supply oriented to the demand of companies for young people in poverty and extreme poverty) and Trabaja Perú (oriented to the field of construction and services).
The Proyectatufuturo application was designed entirely by engineers from the ICT Office of the MTPE and counted on the support of psychologists, economists, statisticians, among other professionals in the development of the great content offered to all interested parties.
