Skills-First Talent Acquisition

As companies and organizations search for new and better ways to acquire talent, skills-first hiring has emerged as an effective alternative to the old practices of scanning resumes, looking for past job titles or specific degrees. A skills-first hiring strategy can give your organization new sources of talent, help people gain good jobs, and ultimately build greater economic opportunity in the world. In this course, Richard Dubuisson explains how you can start moving toward skills-first talent acquisition today at your organization. Richard covers the tactics of what it takes to recruit, evaluate, and hire talented people without formal degrees. He also teaches the equally-important aspects of managing the more nuanced cultural and mindset changes that need to happen as well. Learn how to lay the foundation of skills-first hiring at your company, how to engage in skills-first screening, and how to assemble a diverse interview team and train them to consistently evaluate candidates.
