Our Partner, CAMA, Introduces New Skills-Based Job Platform Skillful

Our Partner, CAMA, Introduces New Skills-Based Job Platform Skillful

–Written by Tim Heaton, President of CAMA Colorado

CAMA is very excited to introduce Skillful, a new skills-based jobs platform. We collaborated with the Markle Foundation and LinkedIn as they developed this tool and believe it has tremendous potential to improve your access to qualified job candidates.  

Locating a qualified candidate on some jobs sites can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Skillful remedies this situation with a more targeted candidate pool and more comprehensive suite of services.

First, Skillful increases your chances of finding a qualified candidate through specialization. The site focuses on middle-skilled job seekers – those with a high school diploma, but not a four-year degree – in a handful Colorado industries like advanced manufacturing and IT.

Second, Skillful offers much more than just a place to post job openings. The Skillful team consults with employers on how to improve job descriptions by emphasizing skills over degrees or years of experience. The team will also do an analytical review of your workforce’s skills and your hiring practices.

Best of all, Skillful is free to use.

Eight CAMA members have already signed on to be Skillful employer partners. The Denver Post’s coverage of the Skillful launch recognized Aqua-Hot, Intertech Plastics, Mountainside Medical, and RK Mechanical for their participation.

BizWest also wrote a fantastic article about our partnership with Skillful.

We’d encourage you to sign up as well. Details about becoming a Skillful employer partner are attached. You can sign up by emailing Drew Petty (dpetty@markle.org).
