Thumbs Up’s mission is to reduce the gap between the education and the workplace, raise the awareness of young people and bring their expectations into line with the needs of companies.
Thumbs Up offers counselling services to young people in order to help orient them and increase their self-awareness.
Thumbs Up offers consulting services for companies who are dealing with the need to check the employees’ motivation and alignment with the company mission. Thumbs Up also helps to preselect new candidates and identify the right team for the right job.
Thumbs Up organizes Self-Entrepreneurship courses for young people to teach them how to improve their interpersonal skills and innovational knowledge, as well as how to develop complex projects and how to write their own CV. We also conduct an interview to help identify the right working sector for each client.
Thumbs Up continues to develop several tests with the aim of matching the needs of young people with the labor market and education system.
Based on a Thumbs Up algorithm, the test can be customized for specific requests.
Thumbs Up Map is the heart of Thumbs Up. It is an innovative online assessment tool which assesses the profiles and motivation of young people in order to check whether or not they are in line with the requirements of the workplace. It is the result of 3 years of work, 32 people in a multidisciplinary team, 35k hours of work, 4 pilot versions, 500 students testing the 4 versions, 5 universities involved, 1070 questions, 721 pictures, 2 formats, and 2 languages.
By participating in Thumbs Up Map, students obtain three outputs: they improve their self-awareness and knowledge of the labor market, they get a scientific base for their CV and they obtain a personalized orientation guide.
Thumbs Up Map can be used by schools and universities as both an orientation tool, and as a tool to aid in the empowerment and development of leadership within a group. It can also be used to help link students to research internships and to help them enter the workplace.
Thumbs Up Map can be used as a preselection tool, by matching the needs of the company with the students' or candidates' profiles. It can also be used for evaluating the company’s employees, their motivation and alignment.
