Introducing skills path, a new way to help companies hire

From LinkedIn: “Workers don’t often realize that the skills they have for one job can be easily transitioned to another job. But the fact is, even if they do realize that, they can’t get hired until employers realize that too. … Building on our commitment with Microsoft where we’ve already helped 30M people get reskilled for in-demand jobs, we are taking our commitment a step further with a new goal to help 250,000 companies make a skills-based hire in 2021 through our new and existing hiring products.

More than a dozen companies are already committed to piloting Skills Path today, including BlackRock, Gap Inc., TaskRabbit, and more.”
