Back to basics - think of your childhood
Think of your childhood. Think what you have dreamed of to become..you wanted to be a Astronaut or a Pilot, Doctor, Lawyer or a Designer? Do you remember the speech and presentation by Tim Brown? If you are not just watch the video. He is talking about being creative and play.
The question of this challenge is : "How might we build better employment opportunities and pathways for young people around the world?" The keywords are "young people". Young people needs are completely different then adults, so we cannot apply the same selection method for both.
Tim Brown: Tales of creativity and play
We also have to approach it from different point of view, different angle. The point what I try to make is, if Tim Brown can make things fun,( I assume to serious people - who were attending to his presentation) than we can make this "serious presentation" (employment opportunities, job hunting) fun for young people.
Who does this idea benefit, who are the main players and what's in it for them?
I think it will benefit for those who are looking for job. My idea is to take off some pressure what you have when you are look for a new job.. mostly when we are looking for a new job, we want something new, different a new adventure in our life..so why we do not start in a fun way?
How is your idea specifically increasing access to employment opportunities and pathways for young people?
We perform better when we do not have pressure on us..so I think when we think job hunting as a new opportunity, adventure or fun ( but serious fun) we open up new opportunities to our self.
Also I got a new idea. What if we think of job hunting as we are dating? I mean both is a kind a same... so why not use elements from Dating websites or platforms to find new job? When you want to meet with someone, you type what type of person you are looking for... so is a same with job search... when you met with someone you try to "sell" yourself... same with job search... the question is how we can find the similarities between the two type of search and how we can re-define and implement?
How do you envision your idea being implemented?
I'm more throwing the idea out there to inspire potential implementers
