    (INDIANAPOLIS) - A job training nonprofit is setting up shop in Indiana to put booster rockets under the state's efforts to beef up its skilled workforce.

    Skillful will work with employers, job seekers, colleges and state workforce development staffers to help match Hoosiers with jobs and build their skills to make them more marketable. The initiative sponsored by the New York-based Markle Foundation will work to help businesses reach a broader pool of recruits and increase in-house training programs, and train job coaches at WorkOne offices, Purdue Extension, and Indiana nonprofits. And Skillful will work with universities to anticipate high-demand jobs of the future.

    Governor Holcomb calls Skillful a "force multiplier" for efforts the state has already put in motion.
