Senior Instructional Designer

Vahan , Bangalore · · Full-time employment · Writer/Editor

India adds 15 million to the workforce every year but it is estimated that at least 50% are unemployable. This has led to the creation of a workforce that is 500 million people strong of which 60% earn less than $2/day - the poverty line in many countries. This issue, wherein most of our workers are operating significantly below their potential, presents a massive macroeconomic problem for India. It could make or break our country's future - our demographic dividend could turn into a demographic disaster. At Vahan, we're building India's first Artificial Intelligence driven virtual teacher for teaching skills that help enhance employability for workers and job applicants.
