Right now there are 5.3 million young adults in this country who are out of school and seeking work. They’ve been overlooked by traditional hiring methods including resumes, interviews and degree requirements that are poor proxies for success in the workplace.

Ironically, this is happening at a time when the war for talent is only heating up—between now and 2020, 12 million jobs requiring some level of higher education are expected to go unfilled due to a lack of skilled labor.

Doing Good Is Good for Business

Employers across the country are collaborating with training providers to build new pipelines of skilled talent and they’re getting results.
