The competency marketplace — a digital hub for job seekers, employers and postsecondary skills providers — is taking a step toward reality, writes Paul on The Job.
The idea is the brainchild of author and investor Ryan Craig, writes Fain. It would “allow learners to see the skills or competencies they need to land posted jobs, with the site then offering applicable online courses and programs from featured colleges and other providers. Employers could recruit completers directly from the hub.”
Unmudl features non-degree online and hybrid courses from seven partner community colleges, explains Julian Alssid of SocialTech.ai, a public benefit corporation that created the course marketplace.
