Stellarworx is a faster way to match trained professionals who are Skilled Through Alternative Routes (STARs) with inclusive employers that are ready to hire.
Byron Auguste recently spoke to the New York Times’ Peter Coy for an in-depth discussion on STARs and their pathways to prosperity.
Millions of Americans are locked out of better jobs simply because they lack a four-year degree. Yet these workers have skills that companies desperately need – skills they developed through military service, in training programs, at community colleges, on the job, or through other alternatives to college. It’s time for more employers to recognize and value individuals who are Skilled Through Alternative Routes (STARs).
At Opportunity@Work, we envision a world where STARs have a fair chance to achieve the American Dream — with fulfilling jobs, rewarding careers, and better lives for themselves and their families.
Here’s how we’ll realize that vision:
We are connecting employers with STARs.
We are connecting employers with training providers and STARs through the rapid scaling of our online marketplace which will make it faster and easier for employers to hire STARs.
Stay connected as we work to expand career opportunities for STARs!
