Inspiration from real professionals
By showing videos created by professionals themselves and providing them randomly to explore, Dough allows users to broaden their perspective on future possibilities regarding work.
How can we empower young people to successfully navigate life’s transitions by leveraging data and AI?
Our team tackled the challenge of exploring ‘what I want to be’ in a context where the future of the workplace is uncertain and when you are in the process of learning how to work.
We focused on key moments in 16 to 24-year-old young people’s lives, when they had to decide what they want to be in the future.
KEY INSIGHTS FROM RESEARCH TO SOLUTIONING
Open up possibilities instead of closing them down
Changing the first step from picking a career to understanding yourself better

PROCESS: HOW WE GOT THERE
1. THE BRIEF
1. Enable positive behavioural change
Alpha, an innovation facility from Telefonica, approached us to develop a service that helps people to improve their agency they have upon their lives and make better personal decisions to increase their happiness and well-being.
2. Focus on Generation Z aged between 16 to 24
This project was targeted at younger generations who are learning to understand and wield their own agency at a time of transition from school to tertiary education and work.
3. Leverage data and AI
Alpha’s approach was to empower individuals to discover and understand the levers of their own happiness by leveraging data and Artificial Intelligence.
2. THE SCOPE
FUTURE OF WORK
We focused our scope on tackling the challenge of knowing what career to pursue in a context where the job market is uncertain. We immersed ourselves in secondary research on Generation Z and reached out to experts in the field to understand how the world of work is changing.

3. SECONDARY RESEARCH
WHAT'S THE CONTEXT?
The future of work is already happening, but there is a gap between Generation Z’s expectations and reality
The entire ecosystem of job market is changing
Nearly 2/3’s of all jobs could have 30% of their activities automated.2)
By 2030, 43% of the workforce will be freelance and it is anticipated that they will have 15-17 jobs in a lifetime.
Gen Z’s expectations are at odds with reality
Digital technology is leading to an increase in the variety of jobs, and some jobs won’t even exist by 2030. However, Gen Z’s ‘dream jobs’ aren’t all that different from previous generations’.
4. USER RESEARCH
WHAT DO YOUNG PEOPLE REALLY THINK ABOUT WORK?
In order to understand and learn how young people think about work and dig deeper into their pain points, we conducted three rounds of primary research to identify problems and opportunities.
