"e-Profiling" and "empowering youth through career skills"

The Island: 05/11/2007"

Two presentations will be made by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, on "E-profiling and empowering of youth through career skills" on Monday, November 5, 2007 in the Board Room of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce.

The presentation on E-profiling would describe an assessment tool that combines measuring the performance of a person by assessing his or her personality when solving work-place problems.

Since E-profiling does not use any language, it will not consider ethical background or cultural influences. E-profiling can be used at any PC in Sri Lanka and the results of the assessment will be produced within a server. The automatic production of reports saves time and assures highest quality. It also implies that observer mistakes will not appear and social adjustments cannot take place.

E-profiling can be used for pre-selection in:
Recruiting and development
Succession planning
Training and development
Career development

This presentation will be held by an official representative of e-profiling in Germany, Ms. Luise Schneider, Senior Consultant and will allow lively discussion and interesting insight into e-profiling. The presentation on E-profiling will be from 10.30 a.m. to 11.15 a.m.

The presentation will showcase an effort to build a favourable employment climate for Sri Lanka’s youth by strengthening job training centres’ capabilities to deliver demand driven skills courses that assure youth gain skills that will satisfy the employer’s needs.

Funded by the USAID under its Accelerated Skills Acquisition Project (ASAP), the Project will present how it aims for a shift in the way the youth see opportunities in the private sector, in improving their employment possibilities. This presentation will be held from 11.15 a.m. to 12 noon.

Please contact the Ceylon Chamber Secretariat for registration and further details.
