Due to the COVID‐19 pandemic, most countries are exposed to unprecedented social problems in the current global situation. According to the official reports, it caused a dramatic increase of 44% in graduates' unemployment rate in Portugal. Moreover, from the human resource point of view, the whole of Europe is expected to face a shortage of 925,000 data professionals by 2025. Given the existing situations, the DataPro aims to propose a national-level reskilling solution in big data to mitigate both social problems of unemployability and the shortage of data professionals in Portugal. DataPro project consists of four dimensions, including an online portal for the hiring companies and unemployed graduates, along with a web-based analytics talent upskilling (ATU) platform empowered by an artificial intelligence recommender system to match the reskilled data professionals and the hiring companies.
