An initiative aimed at bridging the skills gap has created a web-based tool for students and job seekers to build a foundation for becoming workforce ready.
Job Start 101 began out of an initiative of the Business Roundtable, which focuses on education and workforce competitiveness. In 2009, the Business Roundtable convened the Springboard Project. They asked experts what resources Americans need to get the education and training that will help them succeed in the changing economy. They asked hundreds of employers what skills they felt college graduates are missing. And they worked with human resources expert to develop the curriculum found on Job Start 101.
“The purpose of Job Start 101 is to provide you a start on building these critical on-the-job skills,” said William Green, Chairman of Accenture, a management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company. “We believe the information is useful and relevant to situations you will face in your careers.”

IndianaSkills.com aims to bridge the gap between the types of training and credentials people are pursuing in Indiana and the skills being requested by our state’s employers. The site provides information on employer demand for specific jobs, skills and certifications compared to the supply of graduates completing short-term training (two years or less beyond high school) related to these jobs, skills and certifications.
