Talent Supply Connector

The Talent Supply Connector initiative is meeting regional workforce needs by creating a pipeline of career-seekers through meaningful internships, apprenticeships, and other work-based learning experiences. The Talent Supply Connector is helping businesses better define your skill requirements and training needs, facilitating workforce and education access, and supporting alignment between business needs and the current and future workforce.

We support you by:

  • Developing a shared understanding and implementing the tools required for employee recruitment and retention
  • Building a candidate matching system and strategy to connect businesses with talent
  • Facilitating work-based experiential learning, internships, and apprenticeships for students
  • Working cooperatively with businesses and career technical education practitioners to ensure that curricula meet the needs of target industry sectors
  • Implementing systems and processes to support sustainability and scalability for this and future target industry sectors
