How to Develop Young Talent and Bridge the Skills Gap

Presented by

Julie Olson and Lauren Price of Talent Path, David Bloom of Sterling

About this talk

Young people just graduating from college need relevant entry-level jobs, and employers are hungry for talent, but a skills gap stands between them. How can your business tap into this talent pool without risk, and provide young talent with an escape from the employment catch-22 “you need experience to get experience”? Join us on Thursday, July 25th as David Bloom, General Manager of the SMB and Gig teams at Sterling, talks with Julie Olson, Head of Talent Path, and Lauren Price, a recent college graduate, about the skills new graduates need—and how to bridge the divide. Speakers: Julie Olson is head of Talent Path, a leading provider of last-mile education for early career talent. Talent Path is a division of Genuent, one of the nation’s leading technology staffing and solutions firms. Julie was a 2018 winner of the Staffing Industry Analysts’ 40 Under 40 Awards, recognizing industry trailblazers. Lauren Price is a Business Analyst Consultant from Talent Path Houston’s most recent track. She is skilled in data visualization, project implementation, and process improvements with experience in the manufacturing and semi-conductor industry. As an ex-collegiate athlete, communication and teamwork are a couple of Lauren’s best attributes. She is excited to begin consulting and is currently in the interviewing phase. David Bloom is General Manager of the SMB and Gig teams at Sterling, a global leader in employment background screening solutions. David was included in Entrepreneur Magazine's Brilliant 100 and on Business Insider’s list of 100 most interesting people in the NYC tech scene.
