Jobspeaker Supporting Los Angeles Mission College's Commitment to Student Success
SAN FRANCISCO, May 7, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Jobspeaker and Los Angeles Mission College are ensuring student success in job placements. Jobspeaker works in the community with its educational partners to help achieve their career and workforce development goals.
In today’s competitive job market, acquiring a job depends on the candidate meeting the employer's job skills demands. There are 7.1 million jobs that are unfilled due to the skills gap. As a skills matching platform, Jobspeaker helps Los Angeles Mission College meet its needs in job placements for its students. Marla Uliana, Dean of Career and Workforce Education at the college, stated many benefits of the platform: “Jobspeaker offers the uniqueness of skills matching. It’s not just a job board that anyone can post on. Additionally, it’s not relying on a student user to update/input skills. The student’s skill profile is automatically created based off our Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) from each of the courses in their selected major. I know it works because I’ve seen it work for our students, staff and employers.” Currently, Los Angeles Mission College is expanding the use of Jobspeaker to all CTE programs in tracking all career-related events/activity.
Los Angeles Mission College serves the educational needs of the communities throughout the greater San Fernando Valley, as well as Canyon Country and Santa Clarita. Throughout their 44-year history, community support and involvement have been Los Angeles Mission College's most valued resources.
