Skills-First Hiring Experience

Take part in an upcoming three-session cohort to learn best practices in skills-based hiring.

Skills-first learning workshops and info sessions

The TechPoint Skills-First Learning Experience is comprised of three meetings for a total of 6 hours over a 6-week period with in-person and virtual options.

The final meeting combines the in-person and virtual cohorts for a rich peer-to-peer learning opportunity.

When you participate in our skills-based hiring cohorts, not only do you align with our Mission41K to inclusively grow Indiana’s tech workforce by 41,000 additional workers by 2030, but you’ll also:

  • Learn how skills-based hiring helps to increase diversity, reduce biases, and improve retention.
  • Practice updating job postings to be skills-based.
  • Gain access to online learning to share with colleagues.
  • Receive resources and community support to update job postings.
