Volume Title
The current education system of Ghana is designed in such a way that recent graduates of Junior High Schools are required to choose only one track (Science, Business, General Arts, Visual Arts or Home Economics) to pursue in traditional Senior High Schools, regardless of whether or not they are sure of what kind of career they want to pursue. This decision determines the kind of courses they can pursue at University and ultimately affects their course options at University, limiting their possible career choices. In order to solve this problem, this project provides a platform for students to learn about more diverse career paths and interact with mentors in the careers they desire to pursue. The project also recommends good career paths to students based on their given skills and interests.
Applied project submitted to the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems, Ashesi University, in partial fulfillment of Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information Systems, May 2022
