In particular, this effort will highlight the talents and competencies of allied healthcare workers just completing their programs of study.
“The Career Education Talent Showcase is a collaborative effort to promote and celebrate the individuals who have acquired the skills necessary to thrive in healthcare. It’s an initiative to improve employers’ ability to identify and hire those who have best prepared themselves to succeed in this fast-paced, challenging work environment.” – Charlie Wonderlic, CEO Wonderlic, Inc
The Career Education Talent Showcase will provide students and graduates from eligible healthcare training programs the opportunity to earn digital badges that demonstrate job readiness for specific healthcare professions. Individuals will earn digital badges by completing competency-based assessments that use interactive questions to measure applied knowledge. Every digital badge recognizes the educational institution that provided training to the student. Wonderlic and Credly are sponsoring this initiative to provide free participation for eligible individuals.
