With so many challenges facing the cities, I’m so inspired by what’s been taking place in Cincinnati this year. Through the incredible work of the University of Cincinnati and CincyTech, opportunities have been created for Cincinnati-area college students to gain valuable, paid, professional experiences with Cincinnati companies and nonprofits.

As I shared in my LinkedIn post, the lessons learned in Cincinnati can be applied within every community to retain top talent AND top companies, and done in a way that is authentic, sustainable, and cost-effective. And if you want to hear directly from those involved, please join us on Oct 22 for Micro-Internships in Cincinnati during which the three panelists will share how they are leading the way in creating positive social and business impact.

Jeffrey Moss, Founder and CEO

However, in most cases, an equally big problem is the funnel itself, meaning they have parts of their hiring process and criteria that don't bode well for underrepresented candidates."

These common barriers make it difficult for employers to identify why their diversity efforts are not working. Find out what they are and how to eliminate the bias within them.

“Let's focus on teaching human skills so that in a world where change is guaranteed, we can best prepare for a future we can’t predict.”

While Core Skills are vital, it's often difficult for prospective employers to assess them before making the hiring decision. That is another reason why Experiential Recruiting, like Micro-Internships, is vital as it allows employers to better evaluate candidates’ abilities.
