Connect & Collaborate - Skillful - Job Resource - Mar 30, 2016

March 30, 2016

Skillful is a new skills-based online platform that values people’s skills, not just degrees, and supports lifelong learning in today’s rapidly changing economy. Job seekers can now use Skillful to connect to employers with well-paying jobs and educators who can help them acquire new skills and advance their careers.

Colorado joins the greater Phoenix area as a preliminary test market for Skillful, thanks to our state's heavy concentration on workforce development and improving the talent pipeline.

Wan-Lae Cheng, Senior Director at Markle and Alison Dorsey, part of the Economic Graph team at LinkedIn join us to explain the concept behind Skillful, how it helps both job-seekers and employers and the intuitive ways everyone can approach employment in a more meaningful way, and make better matches.
