What you need to know about skills-based hiring
Want help finding the best candidates - with or without degrees? Read below about skill-based hiring.
From LinkedIn News: "You likely have heard the term skills-based hiring over the past year. While the idea has been around for quite some time, the discussion picked up steam as people changed careers during The Great Reshuffle. The term can be confusing, though. After all, isn’t the goal always to hire people with the skills to do the job? Yes, but that’s not always how it works.
The reality is that many companies have set degree requirements or asked for specific experience in job ads. One of the issues with these demands is that they automatically exclude a lot of qualified people for those roles. Ignoring those allows qualified and competent people with diverse backgrounds to access those opportunities — expanding an employer’s talent pool."
