Area residents gathered in downtown Phoenix on Thursday for the official launch of Skillful, a skills-based platform matching job seekers’ skills to potential employment.
Skillful helps employers find potential employees with the proper skills, even if they don’t have the “proper” degree.
“This is a place where there’s a great opportunity for growth for people who don’t have a college degree,” said Zoe Baird, CEO and president of the Markle Foundation, a New York-based nonprofit. Officials and community members gathered Thursday for demonstrations of the site.
