When I first heard about the Kozi App, I had no idea what it did. But after visiting the website, which spots the tagline,’Your Career Companion,’ and downloading the app, it seems to me like a DIY career consulting platform with a job-listing model.
“The app does not tell you your perfect job, it simply takes your answers and matches them with interests and personality types…”
The target audience of the Kozi App
- Employed and looking forward to a career change
- The underemployed and unemployed
How Kozi works
The app asks series of questions about your interests and personality and then comes up with close career matches. Kozi app provides you with a list of vacancies in the recommended careers based on your responses to an earlier set of questions.
Interest evaluation test requires you to answer 32 questions in all, while the personality evaluation test is just a 14-question test.
The part that gets me confused is that it appears the same set of questions applies to every demographic – whether you are employed, unemployed or student, you still answer the same questions in the interest and personality evaluation.
I hope I won’t be wrong to conclude that the Kozi app adopts similar model as the Take Tomorrow App – asking questions and proffering recommendations with respect to your responses.
I took the test as someone employed and looking forward to a change of career, and the careers that best fit my interest which I can relate with include arts, writing and design. The application is currently available for Android and iOS. Do checkout the app, you probably might have another opinion.
