Having a family, the most important thing for me is creating a work-life balance. And SkillUp has shown me how to find the right opportunity at the right time.”

“I feel more strongly than ever about looking closely at opportunities—the values, mission and diversity of the organizations I might work for—and making sure they are aligned with my own. The confidence to do that, the importance of that for both myself and my career, has really come into focus during my SkillUp journey.”

Carmen Moreno

Career Coaching Participant

“ SkillUp is like therapy. I was so lost and confused. I was laid off from my job of over 10 years and did not know where to start. I felt so lost. Your coaching gives me hope and makes me feel like I am not alone. It helped me realize that these things happen (job loss) and that there is opportunity out there and I have support. Thank you SkillUp! ”

Ashley’s Story
Finding Remote-friendly Work

More than 70 million workers in the U.S. are skilled through alternative routes (STARs). They don’t have a bachelor’s degree, and the paper ceiling holds them back from opportunities—even when they’ve demonstrated skills for higher-wage work. We are proud to support STARs and inclusive, skills-based hiring practices. Learn more at TearThePaperCeiling.org and share your story today!

The Future of Rapid Reskilling

With people living longer and changing careers more often, a new form of education — one that doesn’t end at a single vocational program or college degree — is going to be needed to put more people on the path to realizing their potential.

And that’s where SkillUp comes in.
