Why online education is mostly a fantasy
http://buff.ly/JVCaSh


We found the the students we bring into our program as apprentices prefer the person-to-person interaction as the primary means of education. It’s not that they’re not motivated enough to learn on their own, or that they won’t ever supplement their education with online tools, it’s the in person, on the spot, instant feedback that they favor. We help them do their best by leveraging the resources of the Downtown Project to bring in mentors, industry experts, and people that can help them get to where they want to be.

Generation Jobless http://buff.ly/1cWO4VP
Talent mismatch is a big component of youth unemployment. We match our apprentices with projects that are relevant to their interests. If companies are interested in hiring our apprentices, we make sure that they are a good fit for the company. Besides evaluating their interests we also do personality testing to make sure that we can evaluate culture fit in any work related situation that arises.

This afternoon we held our first two interviews for the 2014 Qualifyor Spring Session. We had so much fun interviewing, and absolutely love the level of talent we're beginning to see! We're really excited to continue interviewing the rest of our candidates!
We're already so  #inspired  and impressed by the  #youngtalent  that exists here in  #Vegas  .
