In today’s ever-changing technological landscape, bridging the gap between education and employment has never been more crucial. As industries disrupt and traditional education paths become less linear, there’s an emerging emphasis on skills-based hiring.

The tech sector, in particular, showcases a significant skills gap with a vast array of untapped talent. Enter initiatives like SkillStorm, which identify and empower underrepresented individuals, granting them not only vital tech skills but a pathway to a multitude of careers.

Let’s investigate this skills-based hiring revolution with Joe Mitchell, COO of SkillStorm, who personifies this transformative journey on this episode of DisruptED with Host Ron Stefanski.
