Definitely a large need gap. Solution comes to personalised news at micro level.
Several years back we attempted a customised news platform - https://talkabout.co.in which could address your grievances at some places, but a real solution for this need gap is not just a customisable news platform but a highly personalised one.
It would very interesting to crack this need gap without access to large personal data, it all relies upon the initial on-boarding questionnaire regarding the user's qualifications, current job description and coming up with career trajectories using generalised data. Current state of machine learning algorithms can definitely help create a plausible solution.
