Aivy is a mobile app that helps young people, especially teenagers who are uncertain about their professional future, and need help in choosing the right career. Every year about 30 % of apprentices and students drop out. In addition, about 30 % of employees want to start over, causing high costs for the economy, but also for the individuals themselves. With a simple user-friendly design, playful application and profound content based on expert psychological data, Aivy is a clear winner.

The app discovers hidden potential with engaging psychometric tests, stimulates self-reflection about the user’s vocational identity, and helps find a job that truly fits the user’s potentials and life circumstances.

In its alpha version, Aivy was able to predict the job preferences of about 300 test-users with 14% higher accuracy than the gold standard in psychological testing for career counselling. What’s more, 9 out of 10 of these users rated Aivy as more engaging than currently available services. Aivy is sure to make a broad impact in the field of career planning. Follow your dream job.

Mentor Statement:

„Aivy supports young people in making a complex and really important decision when shaping their future and helps in making the right carrier choice. As a teenager this is rather challenging. Even if you already have a vision of your professional future. Because of this I really appreciate the benefits Aivy brings to young people by helping them to discover and learn about their potentials and vocations. Moreover, anyone willing to change their job or uncertain about their professional future can benefit from Aivy.
But Aivy doesn’t simply provide career counselling it also closes the gap between applicant and employer by bringing them together. Companies can publish job advertisements via Aivy so young people can directly apply for suitable jobs matching their skills and vocational identity. Thus having also companies benefit from Aivy by getting the right and motivated employees.
Besides using modern innovative technologies, its counselling approach and having a holistic view of the job market creating a novel talent-sourcing channel is what makes Aivy an outstanding project to me.“
