Opportunity@Work
re-wiring the U.S. labor market

Opportunity@Work is a civic enterprise whose mission is to re-wire the U.S. labor market to enable more Americans to achieve upward mobility in the job market and workplace. 


We aim to create a job market where...

1. Employers hire based on competence, readiness, and attitude - not just on experience and pedigree. 

2. High-quality training, accessible to anyone motivated and prepared to master valuable skills, creates pathways to better jobs.

3. Technology is used to accelerate learning and optimize human capital potential - not just to automate tasks.

Opportunity@Work + TechHire

Launched March 9, 2015 - Opportunity@Work's first initiative aims to enable widespread adoption of inclusive hiring and accelerated training into good tech jobs, across all industries.  Over half a million such jobs are open today, with employer demand to hire for these jobs growing faster than traditional education and training programs.
 
Beginning with the 21 communities of the President's “TechHire” initiative, who today have over 130,000 open IT jobs, Opportunity@Work will work with a range of technology, private sector and philanthropic partners to create freely available tools to streamline the sign-up and participation of thousands of employers (several hundred have already signed on) in inclusive hiring, and to facilitate a nationwide learning network to rapidly improve the TechHire initiative’s impact.  We are also working to develop a new “pay-it-forward” financing mechanism to allow lower-income Americans to be trained and placed into good technology jobs across the United States, beginning in TechHire communities.   

Find out more about TechHire and Opportunity@Work's commitment to this initiative.
