The value of Calibrate
Every employer knows the biggest challenge today is finding people to hire with the latest skills. There are two ways employers can respond to this challenge. You can respond passively, by sitting back and hoping when it comes to to hire, educators taught the skills you need to their graduates. Or, you can respond actively, by helping educators understand what skills you and the market are demanding from current graduates. And that's the value of Calibrate. It makes it easy for you to help educators understand what skills they should be teaching. After all, you and the educators both want the same thing: more employable graduates.
