“We are excited to show how we can leverage the benefits of both platforms, working in unison to yield better outcomes for SCCRC students particularly as they enter what’s going to be a difficult job market.”
– Jarlath O’Carroll, Founder and CEO of Jobspeaker.
Working in partnership with the South Central Coast Regional Consortium (SCCRC) of 8 Community Colleges and LinkedIn Learning, we provide students with LinkedIn Learning’s video content embedded within the Jobspeaker experience. This world-class content focuses on helping students thrive and get prepared for new adventures in the working world. This addition offers LinkedIn Learning’s career and professional development content directly through Jobspeaker’s web and mobile apps.
We are focused on helping students from across the economic spectrum build their skills towards a fulfilling career. The partnership with the SCCRC and LinkedIn Learning empowers students by providing a variety of learning content to help students achieve their goals.
According to SCCRC Regional Consortium Project Lead and Regional Director, Paula Hodge, the partnership between Jobspeaker and LinkedIn yields the best of both worlds by putting the best career and workforce solution for community college students together with the best content for increasing a student’s ability to be ready for the working world. “We are excited to show how we can leverage the benefits of both platforms working in unison to yield better outcomes for students, particularly as they enter what’s going to be a difficult job market”.
Ryan Zervakos, LinkedIn Learning’s Senior Relationship Manager, commented, “We are extremely excited to partner with Jobspeaker and SCCRC. The combination of the Jobspeaker platform with direct access to LinkedIn Learning will provide a springboard for the Career & Technical Education students in the Region. This partnership is a first for us, allowing their students to seamlessly use all the Jobspeaker tools and easily launch LinkedIn Learning content in one place. We are starting with targeted LinkedIn Learning content specific to job searching and job readiness skills to give their students the best opportunity to get into the job market. In the future, we can add more content around 21st Century Skills.”
Jobspeaker is bridging the gap between Education and Employment for the skills-based economy. Our platform enables students to automatically build their Skills TranscriptTM based on their completed course work and use it to attract the right employers, and employers to identify and hire these job seekers based on their unique skill set. Jobspeaker helps align educational resources with desired career choices and deploy a career/employment oriented infrastructure (across K-12, college, 4-year, workforce boards, and CBOs) to achieve that goal.
Jobspeaker’s Mobile-First collaboration platform tracks job search activity, employment, manage events (including virtual career fairs), employment, plus enables customizable workflows to manage work-based learning experiences (internships, apprenticeships, etc.).
