USAID recently assisted the Afghanistan Technical Vocational Institute (ATVI), a two-year coeducational program, with an innovative website redesign. With new, interactive features to link students and employers, the website now allows students to search and apply for jobs, upload resumes, create personal profiles, and view fact sheets on employers. The site gives companies the ability to locate qualified technicians in the critical sectors of agriculture/horticulture, construction, information and communications technology, and automotive mechanics. It also allows potential employers to search through profiles and resumes from ATVI’s pool of graduates.
A female student from the construction department was pleased with the opportunity to connect with employers. She explained, “The new website with a secure login will be very good for me to apply for my desired post.” A male business management student was impressed with the personalized features, noting, “The website is quite exciting and user-friendly, and has interactive pages to make my own profile.”
