When it comes to careers, a person’s family and social network remain significant constraints on their career planning and choices. And with a ratio of approximately 1 careers adviser to 1000 students the norm at UK universities and schools: the level of support available to those who wish to forge a new direction is limited.
Meanwhile, 87.7% of UK undergrads say they ‘struggle with feelings of anxiety’. A rapidly growing issue linked to concerns about future career prospects. Widening the lens, 61% of 25-33 year olds suffering a 'quarter life crisis' say finding a job or career they are passionate about is the main cause.
So, if you are uncertain about where your strengths and preferences map onto the world of work and lack the relevant connections to guide you: your career options, readiness, and optimism will be severely limited, regardless of your potential. With those from disadvantaged backgrounds worst affected.
Consequently, Udamon exists to provide uncertain career starters and changers with the knowhow and vision they need to confidently pursue their true direction in life.
Currently, we seek to achieve this through our What Path? Course: an engaging, thought-provoking, and empowering online career guidance programme.
