Problem: Unemployment rate in the Arab region is high. One of the main problems that graduates face is lack of experience as most companies require more than five year of experience.

Solution: Cerati initiative is a mobile app and website that provides college students and graduates with access to freelancing, temporary and full jobs and tasks, it provides various training opportunities, workshops, internships, competitions, events, exhibitions and Motivations.

Goals and objectives: Our aim is to integrate university students with the external labour market before the graduation and develop their skills to earn supporting income.

Implementation: Cerati was founded by Ms. Yafa Abd Al Rahim, an entrepreneurship and first place winner in the Arab Innovation Academy in 2018. Cerati works as a linkage between users and employers that nominates the companies that best suits the students’ interests and qualifications.

Cerati platform matches and develops students’ skills and experiences with desirable and available job vacancies. It provides information about various training opportunities, workshops, internships, competitions, events, exhibitions and inspiration.

In addition, it works with more than 50 Palestinian companies and foundations, improving a number of services, which has to fill in the gaps between the two and reinforces the abilities of the student.
