There are 11.4M open jobs in the US and 80% of HR leaders say they can’t find candidates to fill their open positions. While employers want to embrace skills-based hiring, many are looking to understand how to assess skills.

Join our panelists to hear what it would take to validate the mastery of skills coming out of HS for employment and shift the narrative on what to look for when evaluating skills.
