Diplomas Optional: Jobs of the New Century

Technology is profoundly altering the American labor market. Jobseekers struggle to connect their skills and experience with meaningful employment, while more than half the nation’s employers have difficulty finding skilled workers for available jobs. In this session we will discuss how the Markle Foundation and its partners are creating a new and innovative skills-based marketplace to help many more Americans connect to good jobs, new career paths and training resources.
