The Opportunity Marketplace is an online marketplace that will connect employers with training providers placing job-seeking STARs (Skilled Through Alternative Routes), allowing employers to more quickly identify and vet STARs who meet their needs.
Currently, an employer seeking to fill an entry-level tech role could spend six months to 2 years identifying and building trust in an inclusive training provider. Our Opportunity Marketplace platform speeds up this process by enabling employers to rely on a matching algorithm and other employers’ feedback to identify trusted providers and hire candidates. It also allows the providers to better understand and adapt to employers’ needs.
Opportunity@Work’s marketplace is now open and onboarding training providers and employers looking to fill entry-level IT positions in California and the Washington, D.C. metro area, with plans to bring the marketplace to more cities soon.

Within that 6 months to 2 years, employers are trying to understand the providers’ curriculum, teaching staff, and student experience in order to determine the quality of the candidates and ensure a strong fit for their open positions.
Employers can more quickly find a fit by entering requirements and getting matches in return. Employers can also see feedback from other employers who have hired from providers to assess the right fit.
Opportunity Marketplace allows you to place job-seeking STARs with employers quickly by identifying employer needs and receiving feedback to improve matches.
