Nearly 7 million young adults in the U.S. are unemployed, yet 3.6 million jobs remain unfilled.
WITHOUT ACTION, WE ARE AT RISK OF LOSING AN ENTIRE GENERATION OF TALENT AND POTENTIAL.
—– WHAT WE DO —–
Today’s young adults are economic assets, not social liabilities. code to work is an employer-led initiative aimed at transforming the hiring process. We use a skills-based approach to identify, train and hire talent. The traditional credentials-based focus must evolve to give all qualified job seekers a chance to prove themselves.
We help employers find talent in places where they don’t traditionally look. We believe that smart, skilled, hardworking job candidates exist in programs and schools all over the country and we can find them.
We will use a high fidelity skills assessment that measures mastery of the multi-dimensional skillsets required by today’s employers. Once the bar is set by the assessment, the challenge is issued to educators and job seekers: train to this skills bar and you will be steps away from being hired.
Armed with a deep understanding of the skills needed to fill available jobs, code to work will match qualified candidates to critical jobs. We will continually add to the pipeline of talent by adapting today’s curricula to meet the nuanced needs of employers.
Partnering with employers, code to work raises the standards on skills development and, thereby, proving that there are many highly-employable individuals who are simply overlooked by traditional recruiting methods.
Finally, where are we headed? The realignment of post-secondary education will deemphasize the importance of the degree and increase the importance of proven competencies. This will further accelerate the growth of new apprenticeship models and will go a long way to closing the skills gap.
