Today I am drinking Honeydew from Cold Spring, Minnesota.
Look at that foam.
– Oh yeah.
– That’s how you do it, Josh.
Got to sip it now.
This is classic CI.
– That’s beautiful.
– Do I have to drink it with foam?
– All right, let me wipe this beer off.
I need some pumpkin pie, is what I need.
(upbeat groovy music)
Hi, I’m Matt.
And I want to share an important PSA with you.
People matter, even if you believe robots are about to take over the world, it’s still people who design, program, and maintain all those robots.
And as we’ve seen in recent months, when people aren’t working, we feel it.
Displaced workers, the exit of baby boomers from the labor force, people being more selective about which jobs they take, and many other factors have left millions of jobs unfilled.
Simply put, the labor market has changed and will continue to change rapidly.
This means people and employers need to connect based on something that hasn’t changed.
A person’s skills and desire to succeed.
– Fortunately, Emsi Burning Glass has a new solution to help.
SkillFit is a brand new platform that connects the local ecosystem of talent, employers, and educators all based on skills.
With SkillFit, workforce organizations can use the language of skills to help job seekers not just find any job, but the right job, the right fit for their skills.
– What’s on the teleprompter?
– SkillFit helps workforce organizations guide job seekers by answering three questions.
Number one, why is it hard to find the right job?
Rather than starting from scratch and searching a job board, SkillFit begins with the job seeker by revealing their interests with an assessment and uncovering their skills using their resume, online profiles, and self-selection from our library of 30,000 skills.
This gives job seekers a better understanding of themselves and a way to talk about what makes them unique.
Knowing what skills someone has is the first step in knowing where to use them.
Number two, what local job is the right job?
There are skilled people in every community.
SkillFit takes a job seeker’s skill profile and matches it with local job postings they can apply for right now.
Each job shows a match score, helping job seekers understand how well-prepared they are for a particular job.
It also clearly shows them what skills they don’t have, but may need to learn.
Number three, how can people learn more skills?
To acquire the skills needed for the next job or a dream job, SkillFit recommends personalized courses and programs from nearby colleges, universities, and training providers.
By knowing what skills people have, what their goal is, and how to get there, SkillFit helps connect people and employers.
This is up-skilling and re-skilling based on local market demand.
