Careero is a non-governmental nonprofit career/labor guidance organization dedicated to open doors for unprivileged youth and women their next job, through experiential hands and guidance.
We have a lot of experience working with youth in need of jobs we have created CV formats and trainings that have helped many people get into the first interviews.
We are professionals with years of experience on the job trainings and emotional intelligence; we have both worked on the project privately and through other local organizations. We have learned that many fresh graduate and drop outs are in need of capacity building and orientation because they lack experience. We have had flows of youth seeking our help and have engaged many in trainings and mock interviews. Our work have mainly been in the Bekaa region where many feel either hopeless or seek politician offices with often no use. We believe we can make an impact and a change.

"I was searching for a job as teacher after my graduation, however I wasn't lucky to get through due to lack of experience. I contacted Careero and they helped to get into an apprenticeship for four months at Oxfam. I was was then able to get my first full time job after at a local school after that experience."

The theory of change of Careero visions falls under the fact that youth and women are a constantly under-pressed by the "hire power" and the dominant men community which limited their access to the job market and specifically the public administration.
Girls and women in rural communities strive to become achievers through acquiring a given opportunity. Therefore we as Careero value and aim to motivate girls and women into their dreams jobs through proper training and knowledge, hoping to inspire to break all acts of nepotism and favoritism in the country. We believe the discard of the “Hire power” and focusing more on capacity building mainly emotional intelligence and specialized trainings instead of random ones. Careero has since 2013 promoted women into decision making in the local municipality sector, our aim is to promote and identify more political ambitious women and to create a platform for them that will gradually integrate them into their new influential political roles within an administrative political sector.
