Jobspeaker Inc. Partners With National Coalition of Advanced Technology Centers to Address the Skills Gap in Advanced Technology Manufacturing in the U.S.
SAN FRANCISCO, September 22, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Jobspeaker Inc. is pleased to announce its partnership with the National Coalition of Advanced Technology Centers (NCATC). The partners aim to leverage innovative technology to bridge the skills gap between educational institutions and employers.
The need to develop and foster deeper connections in the workforce for students is particularly critical due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, more than 1.3 million higher education students will graduate into the worst job market in a generation as the novel coronavirus cripples the economy.
NCATC, with over 170 member organizations (corporations, universities, community and technical colleges, and CTE high schools) promotes the use of advanced technology applications to enhance economic and workforce development programs and services.
Jobspeaker provides a collaboration platform for job seekers, career service departments, and employers. The platform’s Work-Based Learning, Virtual Career Fair, and Employer Hub products enable campuses to engage at a much deeper level with local and regional employers and track student progression from the classroom through employment.
“NCATC is a cutting-edge organization in workforce development,” says Craig McAtee, NCATC Executive Director & CEO. “We appreciate the technology and expertise that Jobspeaker can bring to our member network and look forward to collaborating with them to bridge the skills gap.”
“As NCATC’s newest Strategic Partner, Jobspeaker is excited and honored to work with the best-in-class NCATC institutions such as the College of the Canyons, Cuyahoga Community College, Monroe Community College, and so many others,” says Jarlath O’Carroll, CEO of Jobspeaker. “Through our Career and Workforce Platform, we aim to increase national awareness of Advanced Technology Centers at these institutions and enhance their positive impact on the country’s competitiveness and economic growth.”
Educational institutions that take advantage of the NCATC/Jobspeaker partnership ecosystem are eligible for incentive pricing. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 31, 2020.
