Meeting the hiring demands of employers by placing unemployed/underemployed talent.
Since Skills launched in September 2012, over 3,000 unemployed/underemployed job seekers have been placed at our growing list of employer partners – creating opportunities to increase economic mobility for Chicagoland area residents and solving talent solutions of local businesses. Beyond our local impact, we provide consulting services for organizations interested in developing or adapting the Skills demand-driven model in their region.
Being unemployed or underemployed and searching for a job is a daunting challenge. We are here as your source for jobs with local employers committed to hire talent like you. We go beyond just listing job opportunities, our team begins with establishing deep relationships with employer partners, then securing commitments to hire job seekers submitted by Skills. The team at Skills then serves as your advocate with the employer and resource for getting back to work.
