The Sri Lanka Career Guidance Network is implemented under the Smart Sri Lanka project conducted by the President's office.

Its objectives include enabling the young people to march forward in a career they choose, entrepreneurial opportunities, job banks and networked professional facts collecting service, enabling to meet the career guidance advisors privately, uplifting the career guidance services in to international standards, building a network of career guidance institutes island wide.

Sri Lanka career guidance unit will provide the pathway for the youth to understand where they must prosper in their career and choose a profession that suits their eligibility and to stop seeking the support of politicians to get a job, according to the President's media division.

President Sirisena further mentioned that, the major barrier behind developing this country is the change in attitude and the inability to take risks, and that the today's youth is not ready for that.
