At Skillco, we believe that our team is building a platform that will allow students of higher education to be able to see what skill sets they are developing as they earn their degrees. Higher education teaches much more than the single talent stated on each degree.
Skillco is working with businesses throughout the state of Utah to find what skills they want the future workforce to graduate with. With this information, Skillco has started building “Career Maps” to help students see what skills they should develop to be more attractive in their desired industry as they enter the workforce.
