With the massive growth potential in the Knowledge (IT-BPM) industry in Sri Lanka, SLASSCOM setup FutureCareers initiative to encourage more people to join the knowledge industry to take advantage of this exciting future. Future Careers targets students aged 15-18 years and young under-graduate students. The platform creates a dialogue between the IT/BPM professionals and students opening vistas of knowledge sharing and experience with the future careers audience, including teaching faculty members.
To facilitate this process, the website of the Future Careers initiative (www.futurecareers.lk) was launched recently and this website provide immense information for the students, parents as well as teachers about the career paths available in the IT/BPM industry. Further development to the website is expected in phase two of the project to directly facilitate the conversation between the job seekers and the companies/industry experts.
