Opportunity Marketplace

Our Opportunity Marketplace connects employers online with training providers that place job-seeking STARs so they can identify and vet suitable STARs more quickly.

Employers Training Providers

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.

Changing the way you hire STARs

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.
