Abstract


The present tools of career and educational guidance provided by educational organizations do not seem to address the problems faced by students, and graduates for applying to their promised job. The growing benefits of cloud software as services increase the requirements of implementing novel applications for career and educational guidance as a cloud service provided by the universities' portal. In this research, the authors present the benefits of using career guidance apps and introduce the implementation of career and educational guidance system (CEGS) in Higher Education. The system is designed specifically for school-level, university students, and graduates. Fuzzy logic operations were used to represent the system inputs, outputs, and rules. The paper aims to present a career and educational guidance application as a digital transformation application in the area of career counseling. The proposed system provides a student with interactive tools to select suitable colleges that match their educational skills and help graduates to select suitable careers for their practical experiences as well as provide them with essential training programs that are needed for particular jobs. The authors used the 2*3 factorial design method for the initial evaluation of the proposed system and to evaluate both students' and graduates' feedbacks. The researcher also uses the one-way ANOVA to find out if there is a remarkable difference between the users' perceptions scores.
