FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

MindSky is an online platform connecting current university students and graduates in Rwanda with employment opportunities.

Employers post their internships and job opportunities on the MindSky job board. MindSky members apply for openings directly on the platform using our professionally-formatted online profile builder as their application document. Hiring managers log in, view, and sort applications as they come in.

We currently work exclusively with Akilah Institute, a tertiary institute in Kigali that graduates many of Rwanda’s most talented and high-achieving young women. Additional Rwandan schools and universities will be joining soon, and we will launch throughout East Africa in the near future.

You can create a free company account right away and begin posting your internships and job opportunities.

To post a new job, please create an employer account and then sign in. Once signed into the employer dashboard, simply click the “Post a Job” link at the top of the website. Once you have completed the new job form, your job listing will be sent to an account manager for review. After the job posting has been approved, it will become active on our job board and applicants will be able to start applying.

Any company can post as long as it a legitimate, real company, and not a scam. We want to ensure MindSky members have a great experience during their job search, so we do review and approve job postings.

MindSky and the Akilah Institute are part of Fowler Education, a pioneer in offering unique educational programs and educational technology products for the African market. The MindSky platform is currently only available to Akilah students and alumni, but we will be opening up to more schools soon. Akilah Institute was founded by Dave and Elizabeth Hughes. Elizabeth is the co-founder and CEO of MindSky.

Most online job sites make you do all the work alone. You spend hours researching job openings, updating your CV and cover letter, and filling in applications. You then hope that a real person is actually looking at your application after you apply. With MindSky, every member is assigned to a personal Talent Advocate — sort of like a career coach who gives you feedback, helps you out when you’re struggling, and makes sure you apply to the opportunities that suit your skills and experience. It’s the smarter job board with a human touch!

MindSky is absolutely free for employers.

Your university or training institution must purchase a MindSky subscription in order for you to create an account and apply for jobs. We are currently only working with the Akilah Institute, but we will open up to more schools soon. Ask your school’s career center to contact us if you are interested in using MindSky to launch your career.

MindSky does not guarantee job placement. Getting a job is still up to you, so you must prepare well for your job interviews, apply to jobs that match your skills and experience, and make an honest effort when writing your job applications. MindSky is committed to helping you in that process and giving you a competitive edge over other job seekers.
