The Hamilton County Economic Development Corp has launched a new skills-based career explorer and job board. The organization says the SkillFit tool is open to anyone in central Indiana who is seeking a job in Hamilton County.
The digital tool helps job seekers see how their current skills and experience match against open positions in the community.
“In July our local economy had over 14,000 open positions,” says Mike Thibideau, vice president of workforce strategy for Invest Hamilton County, “this combined with low unemployment makes this a prime time for individuals to skill up and we want to help them do so into local opportunities. SkillFit Hamilton County is a job board, training directory and career awareness tool all in one.”
SkillFit Hamilton County automatically pulls and updates positions from every major job board as well as a number of state and local boards. An explorer can then see what skills they are missing for any position and get directed in the same tool to all state approved training providers that align with those missing skills.
