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.
